So you’ve learned to love the reversible magic that is double-knitting, and perhaps you want to make a gift with a unique personal touch. You chart out the name of that special someone, but when you double-knit it, the opposite side is all in mirror-image letters! With planning and a little bending of the rules, you can avoid this. In this workshop you’ll learn how to build, follow and knit a two-pattern double-knit chart so that you can make letters readable on either side – or even make two completely different patterns. You’ll gain a deeper understanding of the structure of double-knit fabric and learn the possibilities (and limitations) of two-pattern double-knitting, along with a really clean double-knit selvedge and a bind-off that mirrors the cast-on.
