In 2011, I wrote Extreme Double-Knitting, one of the most complete guides to modern double-knitting yet published. Now, expand your reversible knitting repertoire with my new book of innovative double-knitting.

Double or Nothing: Reversible Knitting for the Adventurous dives in where Extreme Double-Knitting left off, expanding on and tweaking some of the techniques I felt needed more fleshing out -- but spending the most time with the new techniques -- double-knit textures, intarsia, entrelac, cables and lace.

Mistakes will happen: Errata are now available for this book. Thanks to my helpful readers for letting me know so I can inform others and fix the issues in future printings.​

Testimonials from reviewers and customers

Lucky for us, Post-Quinn has been fearless in his ongoing exploration of Double Knitting. This self-published volume neatly and succinctly demystifies basic techniques such as casting on and binding off for this reversible fabric, and even delves into selvedge stitch secrets, invisible increases and decreases, how to fix errors (who, me?), and double-knit cables and lace (oh my). The Hesperos design on pages 58-71 is pure genius! I can’t wait to see what he comes up with next …

Melissa Leapman, bestselling author of “Mastering Color Knitting”

Because Alasdair Post-Quinn is self-taught, he cares that his readers know not only the “how” but the “why,” paying extra attention to details of yarn placement, color dominance, cast-ons, bind-offs, cabling, and stranding so that the adventurous knitter can obtain a complete education from a single pattern. But because they’re so intriguing, most knitters will want to try them all.

Kathy Elkins, WEBS

Alasdair is a gifted technician, a gifted teacher, but more than that, a gifted designer. This book is full of remarkable, engaging – and yes,  challenging – knitting. It’s not just a manual for a technique, it’s a unique pattern book full of wonderful and beautiful things to make. Whether you’re a double-knitter looking to expand your skills, or an adventurous knitter looking for your next project, you will be more than rewarded for the time you spend exploring within its pages.

Kate Atherley, author of “Pattern Writing for Knit Designers”

In this latest book, Alasdair expands on his previous design work by exploring new landscapes in the world of double-knitting. Filled with the most extensive collection of photo tutorials that I have ever seen in a knitting book, Alasdair has come up with elegant solutions for such new techniques as intarsia, textured stitches, entrelac, cables and lace in double-knitting. Each section also contains new designs that feature each of the techniques that have just been covered in exacting detail.

Lars Rains, author of “Modern Lopi: One” and “Presto”

Careful conscientious step by step instructions, thoughtful explanations and clear visuals, place this challenging yet irresistibly fascinating technique within the reach of all knitters. Double Knitting may become the new brioche!

Mary Jane Mucklestone, author of “Geo Knits”

I just received the 2 double knitting books I ordered. I also have Extreme Double-Knitting. As I’m leafing through all of these books I’m feeling like I’ve just been served a 7 course meal at the Dorchester in London. ***** Thank you
