Traveling Stitches in Double-knitting

Traveling stitches are single columns that “float” diagonally above a background; they can be worked as a set of increases and decreases, but most often are worked as a simple 1×1 cable. In double-knitting, those cables aren't quite as simple, but they're still easy to do as compared to wider double-knit cables.

In this workshop, I'll teach some basic increase/decrease traveling stitches, along with two different ways of doing the cabled versions without a cable needle! This workshop will prepare you in part for patterns like Twice as Sexy and Atyria II.
