We're going online with our workshops! You can take this class from the comfort of your home, using a free videoconferencing software called Zoom. Please read the Helpful Tips section carefully before registering for this class.

It's like seeing double. But better!

Discover how to knit two layers of fabric simultaneously to create reversible colourwork designs. With no floats to worry about, your work will stay tidy and stretchy too. You can even use this technique to knit a simple tube on straight needles!

This 2-hour workshop takes place on Saturday, May 27 starting at 9:00 am PDT, 10:00 am MDT, 11:00 am CDT, 12:00 pm EDT, 1:00 pm ADT.

Want to knit along with Carissa? Here's what you need:

  • 50 yards each of 2 contrasting colors of worsted weight yarn,
  • US 6 - 7 / 4.0 - 4.5 mm knitting needles,
  • scissors
  • tapestry needle

Skill Level required: You need to know how to cast on, work the knit and the purl stitch and are familiar with "slipping a stitch". Experience working with 2 colours at once is a plus but is not required. Questions? Contact

About Carissa Browning:

When Carissa isn't teaching classes online, she lives and knits in the Dallas, Texas area, where she has accepted the futility of stitching cozy woolen sweaters and has perhaps overcompensated with a three-month supply of hand knit socks. With a background in math, she particularly enjoys playing with geometry and developing new methods of constructing familiar shapes and patterns using knitted or crocheted fabric. Carissa has beautiful patterns which you can find on her Ravelry page here.
