Basic Skills Necessary:

Pattern Description:

"This was a concept I had a while ago, after discovering the wonder of two-pattern double-knitting. There were some logistical issues to work out, though, before I could finally complete the design. It was important to me that the work be of a high resolution in other words, smaller yarn. I scrounged around for good letter charts before I finally just decided to make my own from scratch. I also needed to figure out how to get the sign to stay flat rather than flopping around as fabric is usually wont to do. I toyed with stretching it on a frame, but decided instead on the more elegant solution documented here. You are of course welcome to mount it however you like." - Alasdair Post-Quinn
