2 Classes, Saturdays 1 - 4 pm March 23 and 30 (note three hour sessions!)
Cost: $45.00 plus materials
In this two-part series, you will learn to double knit and make two small projects.
In Part 1, we’ll explore the basics of double knitting, understand how to read a double knitting chart, and practice knitting this double layer, reversible fabric. You will learn to cast on and begin making a small coaster (knit flat) in class, and finish knitting it at home before Part 2.
In Part 2, we’ll learn to bind off, spend some time checking our gauge, and begin a slightly larger project, a headband knit in the round.
Skills required: You should be comfortable with knitting basics such as traditional long-tail cast-on, binding off, knitting and purling. It may be helpful, but not required, to have prior experience working with 2 colors of yarn at a time (such as in stranded knitting or 2-color brioche).
One ball each of two colors of Ella Rae Classic Wool (100% wool, worsted weight). Choose colors with a high contrast in tone (light and dark). Yarn must be purchased from Yarn VT.
Bring to class:
Knitting needles in size US 6 (4 mm) in your preferred configuration for knitting flat, and preferred configuration for knitting in the round. We suggest you bring a few other sizes larger and smaller as well so you can experiment with getting a nice double-knit fabric.
Stitch markers, scissors, tapestry needle for sewing / binding off.
