Double-knitting is a unique method of making a fabric with no “wrong” side and a built-in reversible colorwork pattern. Significantly different from the standard intarsia and Fair Isle colorwork that are so well known, double-knitting is a labor-intensive but wholly worthwhile technique to have in your repertoire. In this workshop, you’ll learn Alasdair's 2-color cast-on for double-knitting, get comfortable with the techniques involved, then move into colorwork. At the end of the workshop, you should have a motif swatch and be confident that you can tackle a larger standard double-knitting pattern.

Supplies: 

  • 2 solid colors (one light, one darker) of plain yarn in the DK to worsted weight range
  • Pair of straight or circular needles in the size you would normally use for your chosen yarn.

Homework: If possible, please learn the cast-on found at https://double-knitting.com/caston-video. We will be reviewing it in class, but please review this ahead of time. 

Skill Level:  Beginner - able to knit/purl, cast on and bind off.
