Reverse Double-knitting

Do you love the reversible fabric of double-knitting but want something more than endless stockinette? Not quite ready for double-knit cables or lace? Add some intrigue with reverse double-knitting! Add purls to your reversible repertoire to expand the possibilities available to you.

In this workshop, you'll learn reverse double-knitting and how to transition into (and out of) standard double-knitting. You’ll also learn a really clean double-knit selvedge.

This workshop used to be called “Texture in Double-knitting” and may still be listed that way at some shows until the old info is out of the system.
