Bored with only two colors in your double-knitting? Add a third (or a fourth)! With more than two colors per row in double-knitting, the rules change a bit. Learn how to choose a color rotation and maintain it throughout a multi-color pattern.
In this workshop, you’ll get to play with three-color and four-color double-knitting – and open new doors to design possibilities that were previously impossible (or at least improbable). You’ll also learn how to integrate the unused color(s) into a foolproof double-knit selvedge.
This workshop is similar to the Three-color Double-knitting workshop found in Tier 1, and technically has the same prerequisites as a Tier 1 workshop. It's in Tier 2 because of the addition of the fourth color.
