Double Knitting Workshop at Dye Hard Yarns

  • Dye Hard Yarns 1107 Westgate Street Oak Park, IL, 60301 United States (map)

Double knitting allows you to knit the front and back sides of a project simultaneously, creating smooth, reversible stockinette with reversed images on both sides. Designer Cassondra Rizzardi will walk you through the process, showing you the fundamentals of double-knitting, including working with two colors simultaneously and reading a chart. Bonus: Double-knit fabric is cozy and sturdy, so your cowl will stand up to block the wind and keep your neck and chin toasty. Kitty Crowd or Espalier Cowl Patterns included.

Supplies needed: 

  • 240 yds (120 yds. in each of two contrasting colors) of smooth DK weight yarn. Solids or tonals work best. 
  • US 5/3.75mm circular needle 16” cable. (Longer cable size, 40"+, for magic loop is also acceptable if you are comfortable with this method.)
  • Stitch markers
  • Darning or tapestry needle

Course cost is $55. Take 10% off materials the day of class. Come early and pick out your favorites. We're having a Baah Yarn trunk show the day of!

Basic knitting skills required.
