Double-Knitting with Alasdair Post-Quinn

Share Button

We are excited to announce an addition to our fall class line-up!  A talented designer and teacher, who just happens to be coming through town in October, offered to teach a class – so we, of course, took him up on it!

Alasdair Post-Quinn will be joining us on Tuesday, October 18th from 1pm – 4pm to introduce participants to the beautiful and fun technique of double-knitting!

Alasdair says:

Double-knitting is a unique method of making a fabric with no “wrong” side and a built-in reversible colorwork pattern. Significantly different from the standard intarsia and Fair Isle colorwork that are so well known, double-knitting is a wholly worthwhile technique to have in your repertoire.

By the end of this class, you’ll be ready to tackle your own double-knitting project! This technique is great for reversible scarves, hats, blankets, and so much more.

You’ll also have the foundation of skills you need to work on many of the projects in Alasdair’s upcoming book, Extreme Double-Knitting, which he will have for sale at the Cooperative Press Event, on the same day! (You can get a sneak peek at his book in the Fall issue of Interweave Knits!) On October 18th, from 11am – 1pm, Alasdair Post-Quinn and Shannon Okey will be in the store chatting about knitting, designing and publishing during this free event.

    This looks really cool.  Since you do some pod casts would you ever consider doing video ones so we could see/hear when people come to talk?

    Really great succinct definition of double knitting. Looks really cool.
