Sockmatician - Demystifying Double Knitting

Saturday 2nd September at Purlescence HQ, Newbury

Overview

Nathan Taylor, (aka Sockmatician on Ravelry, Instagram, YouTube and Twitter) is obsessed with double-knitting! His passion is for sharing his knowledge of DK with as many people as possible, pushing its boundaries, and furthering what is possible within the realms of double-knitting.

This is a class for knitters who want to explore the wonderful world of double-knitting (DK). That’s the two-sided technique, not the yarn weight!

DK is a versatile and wonderful way of creating stunning effects in reversible, two-sided knitting, so no more wrong sides, no unsightly floats, and best of all, two garments in one, as whatever beautiful pattern is displayed on the front, shows on the back too, but with the colours reversed. Magic!
