Learn the basics of Double Knitting, including casting on, increasing, decreasing, and binding off. We’ll practice both Open Edge stitches and Closed Edge stitches, and discuss when to use each. I’ll demonstrate both methods of working DK (both sides in one pass, and 2 passes per row). If you don’t know what that last sentence means, take the class and learn about your options!
Skills focus: Students will learn how double knitting is done, and begin a small project using double knitting. They will learn how to read their knitting to see where they are, how to read a chart for double knitting, and how to manage edge stitches.
Skills needed: CO, knit purl, inc, dec, BO, basics of knitting with two colors.
Materials to bring: Two balls of wool (a light color and a dark color) and needles in a size appropriate for your yarn (circular or straight).
