$40 – pattern included, supplies extra
One 2.5-hour class
Instructor: Michelle Hunter
Class level: Intermediate Knit
Knitting is twice as much fun with this interesting technique! Double knitting creates two layers of fabric with reversing color patterns. The warm, reversible fabric is perfect for hats, mittens, blankets and more. Students will learn to execute the perfect double knitting cast on, expert yarn strategies, chart reading and finishing techniques while creating a clever coaster. These coasters make great gifts! Class also covers design tips to create your own unique coasters.
Supplies needed include:
- Yarn – contrasting colors of Simplicity or Cascade 220
- Needles – Double knitting is loose so needles 2-3 times smaller than recommended by the yarn are required. Bring several sizes, if available – straights or circular needles. Michelle used US 4 with Simplicity, and US 5 with Cascade 220.
- Double points in same size as those used in knitting
- Blunt tip tapestry needle
- Post-it notes
