Double Knitting with Alasdair Post-Quinn January 2017

Double-knitting is a technique by which you create a fabric with two right-side layers.  It was new technique for many of us at the workshop and required much concentration and focus.

After a last minute scramble for a location, we met at a mill building in Manchester.  Alasdair introduced the technique and showing us impressive samples and then we were on our way.  Starting with an unusual long-tail cast on to thinking in reverse, linking edges and a cast off modification there was a lot of material covered in 3 hours.

It was fun to learn a new technique.  I now need to knit something at home to reinforce what I’ve learned.
