The more I double-knit, the more possibilities I see opening up before me. I love the possibilities of lace – the elegant shapes and flowing forms that can be generated with just a few holes and decreases. As I push the boundaries of double-knitting, how could I not try double-knit lace? It turns out that there are several ways to do it – and not all of them are interchangeable.
In this workshop, you’ll learn two of the methods of double-knit openwork that I’ve discovered, and the pros and cons of both. You’ll also learn a really clean double-knit selvedge.
