Alasdair Post-Quinn
Craftsy Instructor

Cambridge, MA

I got started knitting about a decade ago, and through dedicated focus (or sheer lunacy) I have built myself into a world authority on double-knitting, a technique which can be used to make knitted fabric with no wrong side. I've written a book entitled "Extreme Double-Knitting" which was published in October of 2011 on Cooperative Press. I'm on Craftsy as an instructor but I'm sure even I can still learn some things here.

Adventures in Double-Knitting

Begin your adventure with a basic diamond pattern, where you’ll discover how to knit both sides of the fabric simultaneously and change yarn colors. Move on to more daring patterns and master double-knit increases and decreases, cabling and working in the round. Finally, finish the journey with Alasdair's extreme double-knitting techniques, in which you'll explore two-pattern and three-color methods. Brandish your knitting needles and take this class today!
