Knitting with Disney Weekend: DOUBLE KNITTING THE QUEEN OF HEARTS SCARF
Saturday, Nov. 13: 1-4 pm
Double Knitting the Queen of Hearts Scarf
Off with their heads! A truly magical technique, Double Knitting creates a double-thick, double-sided fabric with no visible wrong side and inverted colors simultaneously! A cousin to stranded colorwork and intarsia, Double Knitting requires no stranding, no float trapping, no bobbins, and allows for larger motifs to be knit with ease without worrying about puckering. If you can knit and purl, you can Double Knit!
We’ll cover basic Double Knitting techniques, chart reading, casting on, maintaining our edges, and binding off while we knit up the Queen of Hearts Scarf. By the end of our time together, you’ll be Double Knitting like a champion!
Level: Intermediate – previous colorwork experience necessary; you can take the morning class and be ready to take the afternoon class as well.
