Intermediate | 42 min 49 sec
Double Knit Basics
Double Knit Cowl
In this technique-intensive class, knitting master Lynne Barr demystifies the art of double knitting. She begins by explaining what double knitting is and the fundamentals of how it is worked, and then she demonstrates how to read a double knitting chart to create multicolored reversible pieces that have different designs on the front and back. She also provides a valuable lesson on how to create your own double knitting charts using any stitch patterns you please. To put the lesson into practice, she shares instructions for knitting an adorable double knit cowl in the round with a striped design on one side and dots on the other. To give the cowl lovely rounded edges, she works a tubular cast on and bind off—both very handy techniques to know for your future double-knitting projects.

Clear and informative for a difficult topic.

Confused! She moved a little too fast for me, and although she was very clear and easy to understand, the speed in which she conveyed her information was too fast to follow comfortably.
