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.
