Double-knitting Off the Grid
Knitting is so often just one row of stitches on top of another – and double-knitting doubly so. In the pursuit of more interesting shapes, sometimes you need to go … off the grid.
In this workshop, you’ll learn a whole host of double-knit increases and decreases – you can use them for shaping later, but I prefer to use them to make colorwork that almost seems to be embroidered onto the fabric. You’ll also learn a really clean double-knit selvedge.
