Double-knitting Single-layer Lace

This is a brand-new application of double-knitting lace, which creates a fabric which has lace on one layer and solid fabric on the other.

In this workshop, I will teach you how to work lace on one layer and do various things with the plain layer, including echoes of the colorwork in the lace layer, or no colorwork at all. You’ll also learn a really clean double-knit selvedge.

(what to know)

You should have taken the Introduction or Advanced Beginner workshops or have facility with modern (two colors at once) double-knitting. You should also be comfortable with lace techniques in single-layer knitting and following them in charts.

You can get a leg up by taking my Double-knitting Lace, Shaping, or Off the Grid workshops, but these are not strictly necessary.


(what to bring)

2 distinct solid colors (1 light, 1 darker) of plain yarn in the fingering to sport weight range and a pair of straight or circular needles one to two sizes above what you would normally select for your chosen yarn.
