Technique Corner April 3, 2017

Filed under: Guest Post,Knitting tips and hints,Technique Corner — jcw104 @ 08:00

After almost a year we have finally reached the end of Lucy’s YouTube videos, so this will be my last post for technique corner – I hope you have enjoyed these weekly posts, and that you have picked up a few new techniques!

For  the final technique corner video we have something truly unique: Lucy’s highly innovative ‘non-negative/positive’ double knitting.

Most double knitting is ‘negative/positive,’ meaning the same pattern appears on both sides of the knitting, but the colour ‘polarity’ is reversed (e.g., if the front has a white square on a black background, the back will have a black square on a white background).

Watch the following video to discover how you can expand your double-knitting horizons with non-negative/positive double knitting!

For more videos like this, see Lucy’s Double Knitting playlist.
