Class Title: Multi-color Double-knitting

Teacher Name: Alasdair Post-Quinn

Class Length: 3 hours

Class Fee:  $55.00

Class Day/Time:  Saturday, 2:00 pm to 5:00 pm

Class Description:

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.

Level:  Intermediate 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 have some basic familiarity with knitting charts.


Registration necessary, class size limited to 20


Supplies Needed: 3 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 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.
