Double knitting is a cool and fun knitting technique that produces a double layer of stockinette stitch fabric with mirror image colorwork while knitting both layers at the same time. In this class we will use tubular cast on and bind off, knit in the round and learn the two handed method of double knitting while reading a chart.
We will spend part of the first class practicing the techniques used. Please bring a small amount of worsted or bulky weight scrap yarn in two colors and 16" or 24" circular needle in the appropriate size for your yarn.
