DKG will be presenting… Double Knitting on MLK Day

Dear Knitter,

I hope you can join me this Monday. I will be teaching Double Knitting. This is going to be a hands-on class, so bring some needles and yarn. We will all be making the same project. I will be handing out a pattern that I have been using since I taught myself how to Double Knit 26 years ago. We will be making a small project so that you will be on your way to mastering Double Knitting.

The pattern calls for knitting needles in a size US 1 and US 3. If you think those will be too small, go ahead and bring some bigger sized needles. The yarn should be worsted weight cotton. Walmart sells Peaches & Creme. Make sure you have 2 contrasting colors. Black and white would be perfect for a beginner.

I hope I will be seeing you on Monday. It’s Martin Luther King Day and there is no snow predicted. Just saying…

Your Truly,

Heather Janney
