Colourful Garments with Double Knitting

Add extra fun to your garments! Knit colorful and fully reversible patterns with double knitting. In this workshop I’ll walk you to the technique of double knitting. We will be knitting colorful samples and I will share with you all my tips and secrets to make it extra enjoyable and tangle free. With double knitting you can knit in the round on straight needles. Use it to work a reversible fabric or to work small circular pieces without using magic loop or double pointed needles.
As usual in all my workshops I’ll be showing how to work this technique in continental, Portuguese and English knitting styles.

PROGRAM:
– introduction to double knitting, understand reversibility
– cast-on
– how to double knit, tips and tricks to handle the yarns
– bind off, seaming and finishing tips
