Description

With this technique you can create a double-sided fabric—the right side is always facing out. You’ll work two right-side rows at the same time: one row is the front of the piece, the other is the back. Worked in two colors, you’ll have the same design on each side, but the colors will be reversed. In this class you’ll learn the ins and outs of double knitting, including two different ways to cast on and bind off, and get started on a double-knit scarf.

Experience level: Advanced beginner.


Materials Information

Bring to Class:  Approximately 200 yards of two colors of the same yarn (sport, DK, or light worsted weight), appropriate size knitting needles, scissors, and tapestry needle.
