About This Class: Double knitting is a special knitting technique that produces a double thickness fabric that can be reversible, but doesn’t have to be! We’ll knit a small coaster while learning a two-color cast on, the basics of double knitting, and a seamless bind off. Several coaster design options will be provided.
Materials - Materials for class are available for purchase at Cheers To Ewe! and are not included in the price of this class. All materials purchased for classes are 10% off for students enrolled in the class.
For this class you'll need:
- Worsted weight yarn in 2 contrasting colors, about 25g of each color.
- Working needles (circulars are best) in size 3 or 4. (We need a smaller needle than typical for worsted yarn – double knitting gauge tends to be very loose.)
Please bring your notion bag to classes.

Please DO NOT begin this project before class unless class homework has been included in the class description or is sent out by the teacher before class. Teachers often incorporate foundational techniques and lessons in the beginning stages of class, and you will not be able to take advantage of that learning if you jump ahead.
