Double Knitting

Double knitting produces fabric with no wrong side and built-in reversible colorwork patterns. From an expert who pushes the boundaries with complex color and texture combinations, learn double knitting flat and in the round, including closure. Take home a hat of your own design.

Note: You must have taken Basic Knitting or possess equivalent skills. Previous colorwork experience is useful but not necessary.
