Basic Double Knitting Tutorial

Tomorrow I finally get to enjoy all the planning that has been going on for over a year and go to the Studio 66 Retreat!! I am really excited. I get to help out with some of the dyeing activities, including space dyeing cotton yarn and dyeing fiber in the crock pot. I also get to demonstrate, and this year I chose Double Knitting.

Double Knitting creates a reversible fabric made up of two layers. It is thick and warm, a perfect choice for winter outerwear and blankets. It is not nearly as difficult as it appears, if you can knit and purl then you can work double knitting!

I wrote up a tutorial to help my students along and give them something to work off of once the fun is over and everyone goes home. For anyone else who wasn't lucky enough to go to the retreat, here is the tutorial available as a free download.
