Double-knitting Entrelac

Are you a double-knitter itching for a technique extravaganza? Do you love the basket-weave look of entrelac knitting but dislike the unattractive wrong side? As I developed the techniques for double-knit entrelac to include in my book Double or Nothing, I discovered that the two techniques are surprisingly compatible and fun to combine.

In this two-session workshop, you'll learn double-knit invisible short-rows, increases, decreases, picked-up stitches – and combine it all to make a double-knit entrelac swatch. With these techniques, you can modify most entrelac patterns to make them completely reversible.
