How often have you made scarves or shawls or afghans, wishing the “other side” was just as presentable? Always intrigued by reversibility, Lily will present some ways to introduce colorwork into these items and many others. We’ll cover double-knitting, pinstriped brioche or tuck, and several knit-purl combinations. Find out which method works best for intended motifs.
