Advanced Double-knitting Lace

Double-knitting lace can be as simple as combining double-knit decreases and double-decreases with judiciously placed yarnovers — just as simple single-layer lace is. But as with single-layer lace, there's a host of other techniques that can be combined to do some really fascinating things.

In this workshop, you'll learn some of the more unusual techniques I've developed thus far for double-knit lace, as well as a slipped-pair method for cleaning up the colorwork you might include in the fabric.
