Do you like to knit with colour but struggle with stranded work?  In this class you will learn a colour technique that results in a  reversible fabric.
Double Knitting is the technique where you knit two right sides at once with two different colours to  get a reversible piece. It’s great for shawls, cowls and hats, but you can also use it for cardigans and jumpers.

In this class you will learn: two colour cast-on, chart reading, double knitting straight (practice), double knitting in the round (without practice in class, but you will go away knowing how to do it), and bind off.

You will knit a little square with a heart on both sides.
Meret will teach you this amazing technique step-by-step. This class will take your knitting skills a step further!

Materials: Yarn will be supplied but please bring straight, DPN (or short circular needles) size 3.00mm/3.5mm.
