26 July – meeting host Denise
Double-knitting seems to do the impossible – it creates a reversible two colour fabric.
Double-knit fabrics are two layers of fabric worked (and tightly bonded) together – one layer of stockinette facing toward you and another layer of stockinette facing away.
Great for items such as scarves, blankets, or any garment you would like to be reversible plus heels of socks and any other part of a garment you would like to strenghten up.
There are excellent books on double-knitting. The Essential Guide to Colour Knitting by Margaret Radcliffe and Mastering Color Knitting by Melissa Leapman which has comprehensive instruction on casting on, knitting technique, shaping and binding off plus a pattern treasury.
