As you push the boundaries of double-knitting, how could you not try double-knit lace? It turns out that there are myriad ways to do it, and not all of them are interchangeable. In this workshop, you’ll learn 3 of the methods of double-knit openwork that Alasdair has discovered, along with the pros and cons of each. As with the other advanced workshops, you’ll also learn a really clean double-knit selvedge and a bind-off that mirrors the cast-on.
