Double-knitting Stacked Stitches
Xandy Peters rocked the knitting world with the “Fox Paws” pattern, a complex collection of stacked increases and decreases largely based in garter stitch. I recently took up the challenge and discovered a clean method of achieving stacked stitches in double-knitting — and, with a suitably long circular needle, you can work stacks of any height with equal ease.
In this workshop, you'll learn stacked increases and stacked decreases in double-knitting, and hopefully leave ready to adapt your favorite stacked-stitch pattern to a fully-reversible one!
This is a brand new workshop, and as such has no sample art yet. Thanks for your patience!
(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 have some experience with single-layer stacked stitches.
(what to bring)
2 distinct solid colors (1 light, 1 darker) of plain yarn in the DK to worsted weight range and a long circular needle in an appropriate size for your chosen yarn.
(what to Do)
If the upcoming virtual or live workshops below don't work for you due to time or location constraints, this workshop's last session was recorded and access is now available for purchase!
