Join us to learn how to double knit. The wonderful technique of double knitting creates a two-layer fabric with knit stitches on both sides. Working double-knitted fabric feels very much like knitting a 1x1 rib, but unlike the rib, you are using different yarns for the knits and purls.
The finished fabric is completely reversible, lending itself to color work, contrasting fibers, or simply a knit-faced fabric that is twice as warm!
Materials to have with you at the first class:
- Yarn: Worsted or aran size yarn in 3 colors, about 90 yds ea

- Needles to match the weight of your yarn, 16” circular and double pointed needles, or a 40” circular ( the pattern uses US 7 needles for aran yarn, we recommend US 6 for worsted yarn. Please take into account your knitting. If you are loose knitter, go to a smaller needle. If you are a tight knitter, go to a larger needle.
