Wednesday May 23 is the Double Knitting Workshop!
I think I’m going to sit in on this class. Not only do we have a brand new talent teaching the workshop – Mr. Dylan Uscher, but it is a skill I’ve been aching to add to my list of knit-achievements. I want to make this↓one day!
…and perhaps this↓another day!
Both of which are by the kick-ass designer Kate Davies, and both employ the technique of double knitting. See how one side of the Funchal Moebius has white shapes on a blue background and the other side has blue on white! Well, that sucker was knit all in one piece trading colours and slipping stitches here and there. The result is a two sided stocking stitch fabric that is double thick and incredibly neato!
All-over patterns are possible, and so are pictures like this crow scarf called Corvus or words too, anything you can chart you can make into a double knit.
See you there
