Double-knitting Further Off the Grid
If decorative increasing and decreasing just doesn't reach far enough for you, let's try reaching further using some more extreme increases, decreases, and adding in some traveling stitches and judiciously placed slipped pairs. Combining all of these techniques can create double-knitting that looks as if it had embroidery worked on top of it.
In this workshop, you'll expand on your existing knowledge of “Off-the-grid” double-knitting with techniques that complement or extend the reach of the techniques you learned in the first workshop.

You should have taken the Double-knitting Off the Grid workshop or have experience with double-knitting increases and decreases from my patterns or other sources. You should also be familiar with simple traveling stitches in single-layer knitting (or have taken my Traveling Stitches workshop, but this is not a requirement).
(what to bring)
2 distinct solid colors (1 light, 1 darker) of plain yarn in the DK to worsted weight range and a pair of straight or circular needles in an appropriate size for your chosen yarn.
