Reversible Fabrics & Garments with Laura Bryant
Wouldn't it be nice to get double duty from our knitting efforts? Join Laura in exploring truly double-sided fabrics in a variety of stitches, with an emphasis on two sides that read very differently. Not brioche, and not double knitting; there are a few other ways to get similar results. To ice the cake, we'll then look at finishing techniques that allow a garment to be truly reversible, with no raw seams or pick-up ridges showing!
