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!

I'm on vacation! I'll be out of the country for a while and not as active on here as normal. If you're finding yourself waiting for an answer to a question, that's probably why. At this point, this class has been going on long enough that 90% of what people ask has been asked (and answered) before, so please check the knowledge base. I will periodically check in but I won't be able to guarantee a speedy response. Thanks for your understanding!
