Class Title: Texture in Double-knitting

Teacher Name: Alasdair Post-Quinn

Class Length: 3 hours

Class Fee:  $55.00

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

Class Description:

Do you love the reversible fabric of double-knitting but want something more than endless stockinette? Not quite ready for double-knit cables or lace? Add some intrigue with double-knit textures! Add purls to your reversible repertoire to expand the possibilities available to you. In a small swatch, you’ll learn a few interesting ways to add texture to your double-knitting, and the pros and cons of each. As with most of my other workshops, you’ll also learn a really clean 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: 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 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.


An Admission ticket must be purchased to attend all classes
