Bored with only two colors in your double-knitting? Add a third (or a fourth)! With more than two colors per row in double-knitting, the rules change a bit. Learn how to choose a color rotation and maintain it throughout a three-color pattern. In this workshop, you’ll get to play with three-color single-pattern as well as two-pattern double-knitting – and open new doors to design possibilities that were previously impossible (or at least improbable). You’ll also learn how to integrate the third color into a foolproof double-knit selvedge, and a bind-off that mirrors the cast-on.

Supplies: 

  • 3 solid colors (one light, one darker, and one accent color) of plain yarn in the DK- to worsted-weight range
  • Pair of straight or circular needles in an appropriate size for your chosen yarn.

Homework: Before arriving, please download the homework page at http://double-knitting.com/mcdkhw and follow the instructions.
