Introduction to Double Knitting with Alasdair Post-Quinn
Double-knitting is a unique method of making a fabric with no 'wrong' side and a built-in capacity for reversible colorwork pattern. Significantly different from the standard intarsia and Fair Isle colorwork, double-knitting is labor-intensive but a wholly worthwhile technique to have in your repertoire.
You'll learn Alasdair's 2-color cast-on for double-knitting, get comfortable with the techniques involved, then move into colorwork. By the end of the workshop you should have completed a motif swatch and be confident that you can tackle a larger standard double-knitting pattern.
