Can you knit and purl? Then you can double knit using just one needle to cast on! Together we’ll create your own personalized design for a thick, sturdy, reversible pot holder, hot pad, coaster, or scarf in two or more colors. You can draw your design with paper and pencil or with an electronic tablet. Your double knit project will be elegant with four fully integrated smooth sides. We’ll also learn an incredibly fast and easy way to double knit using one color. Bring with you: 1) yarn of your choice, two solid colors; 2) two needles, or one straight needle and one circular (or long loop) needle of any size, to create the tension you like; 3) a crochet hook for hiding ends and fixing errors; and 4) a tapestry needle for binding off.
