Double-Knit Sweater Vest
with Dick Dapson, Knitting Guy



Double-knitting produces a 2-layered fabric that is reversible. By using two different colors of yarn, intricate patterns can be created. This class will teach the basics of double knitting and then will guide students through the construction of a beautiful double-knit sweater vest. There is one class meeting (choose from either of two dates). Much of the knitting will take place on the students’ time. When certain milestones are reached, make an appointment to come in for brief, one-on-one sessions. The class fee covers all scheduled and by-appointment classes and the extensive tutorial pattern. Yarn and notions are extra.


Prerequisite: must be above beginning level, comfortable with working a k1, p1 pattern.

Purchase supplies before the formal class. A handout will guide you through selection of yarn.

Registration fee: $50. Pick either of the following dates:
Class #73.1, Saturday, December 7, 2013
Class #73.2, Saturday, January 24, 2014
