Double Knitting or Fakin' Fair Isle (3 hours)
Wednesday, April 26, 6-9pm • $50
Teacher: Beth Battey
Double knitting! Spun fave Beth Battey will lead you into a new world of colorwork, teaching you how to create reversible flat fabrics in two colors without the stress of Fair Isle. We'll learn a two-color cast on, how to knit using the Continental method (picking), and a quick, easy new way of purling without moving the yarn for greater tension control. Several two-color pattern charts will be on hand to choose from during class, or bring your own.
Pre-requisites: Participants need to know the long tail cast on and how to knit, and purl.
Materials: Choose two contrasting colors in worsted weight yarn - one light, one dark for best effect. Size 6 or 7 needles (smaller than usually used for worsted weight) in straight, circular (16" or 24" cable), or long double point needles.
Maximum number of students: 7
