Get Knitting: Double Knitting for Absolute Beginners

Double knitting lets you knit two layers of fabric at once and can be used to make double-thick and completely reversible patterns.  The technique can be a bit of a brain-bender, but if you can confidently cast on, knit, purl, and slip stitches, you can double knit.  We will take it slowly and build up to following patterns and making tidy edges.  We will spend the first two hours of class practicing (no stress! rip out freely!) before starting a simple, small coaster project in the final hour.  You will get lots of hands on help during class, detailed written instructions, and a list of resources and patterns.
