Dorothy is Teaching

Yarn guide by Clover - ours are blue right now!

Ever wondered how to create those gorgeous two sided scarves and cowls that are making headlines in Vogue and other knitting magazines?  They are knit using a double knitting technique. Dorothy is teaching double knitting this fall and the project is a gorgeous double knit cowl featuring a Scandinavian Star pattern.

Materials: 6 colours of 4-ply fingering yarn – Dorothy’s sample used a kit from Frabjous Fibers, Cheshire Cat Mini Skeins, plus a skein of Folio from Berroco; 3.75mm needles – straight or circular; 5 buttons, approx. 5/8 inch wide; markers and the regular notions.

Dorothy has been using a yarn guide that fits on your finger to help make the colourworking easier and has had great success with it – if you have one, bring it along as well.

Cost is $55.00
