Class Title: Double-Knitting Lace

Teacher Name: Alasdair Post-Quinn

Class Length: 3 hours

Class Fee:  $60.00

Class Day/Time:  Friday, 12:30 pm to 3:30 pm

Class Description:

The more I double-knit, the more possibilities I see opening up before me. I love the possibilities of lace – the elegant shapes and flowing forms that can be generated with just a few holes and decreases. As I push the boundaries of double-knitting, how could I not try double-knit lace? It turns out that there are a myriad ways to do it – and not all of them are interchangeable. In this workshop, you’ll learn 3 of the methods of double-knit openwork that I’ve discovered, and the pros and cons of each. As with the other advanced workshops, you’ll also learn a really clean double-knit selvedge and a bind-off that mirrors the cast-on.

Level:  Advanced. Previous double-knitting experience required — you should either have taken Alasdair’s Double-Knitting Off The Grid workshop in person or completed the Craftsy class, or have done some other double-knitting increases and decreases on your own or in another workshop. You should also be comfortable with basic single-layer lace knitting and following it in charts.


Registration necessary, class size limited to 20


Supplies Needed: 2 highly-contrasting colors of plain yarn in the sport to DK range and a pair of straight or circular needles in a size or two up from the proper size.


Materials Fee: $1.00 for handouts, payable to teacher in class


Homework: 

If you’re not already familiar with my cast-on, please learn it before the workshop so we can move right into new techniques. The cast-on we’ll be doing is subtly different from the one currently online but it’s best if you have a solid foundation. You can find a video tutorial on Youtube. Also, please bring a sample or photo of your previous double-knitting work, if handy.


A 3.00 electronic administrative fee will be added for all online registration transactions.
