Double Up and Around – Lucy Neatby

Make an exploratory journey into other realms of Double Knitting (which produces two-layer fabrics). We will begin with tubes within tubes, worked in the round, initially with a single yarn, two yarns and then with colour patterning. We will look at different ways to handle the yarns for maximum efficiency and how to incorporate shapings into double fabrics, hats, topped off with tubular bind-off. These techniques are suited to ultra warm mittens and cozy lined socks.
