Alasdair Post-Quinn will be in town teaching Double Knitting!
Friday, May 5 from 1 - 4pm
Learn double-knitting and reversible colorwork techniques with designer/author/teacher Alasdair Post-Quinn!  This 3-hour workshop will be held on Friday, May 5 from 1 - 4 pm at Hampton Inn and Suites, 6690 Ironwood Blvd, Canfield, OH 44406 (only 1.5 mile from The Flaming Ice Cube).

Double-knitting is a unique method of making a fabric with no "wrong" side and a built-in reversible colorwork pattern. Significantly different from the standard intarsia and Fair Isle colorwork that are so well known, double-knitting is a labor-intensive but wholly worthwhile technique to have in your repertoire. In this workshop, you'll learn my 2-color cast-on for double-knitting, get comfortable with the techniques involved, then move into colorwork. At the end of the workshop, you should have a motif swatch/coaster and be confident that you can tackle a larger standard double-knitting pattern.
