Class Title: Double-Knitting Off-the-Grid

Teacher Name: Alasdair Post-Quinn

Class Length: 3 hours

Class Fee:  $55.00

Class Day/Time:  Sunday, 9:00 am to 12:00 noon

Class Description:

Knitting is so often just one row of stitches on top of another – and double-knitting doubly so. In the pursuit of more interesting shapes, sometimes you need to go … off the grid. In this workshop, you’ll learn a whole host of double-knit increases and decreases – you can use them for shaping later, but I prefer to use them to make colorwork that almost seems to be embroidered onto the fabric. If you combine this technique with double-knit cables, whole new worlds will open up before you. 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 Introduction to Double-Knitting workshop in person or started the Craftsy class, or have done some other double-knitting colorwork on your own or in another workshop. You should also be comfortable with some type of increase and decrease in single-layer knitting and be able to follow them in charts.


Registration necessary, class size limited to 20


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


Materials Fee: $1.00 for handouts, payable to instructor 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.
