Traveling Stitches in Double-knitting

Traveling stitches are (in some cases) also a type of cable, but typically limited to a very simple 1×1 twist. In double-knitting, it's not quite as simple, but it's still easy to do as compared to wider double-knit cables.

In this workshop, I'll teach two different ways of doing these techniques without a cable needle! This workshop will prepare you in part for the patterns Twice as Sexy and Atyria II. You'll also learn a really clean double-knit selvedge.
