What It's All About

Join Lucy Neatby for a short introduction to two-colour, negative/positive double layer knitting. You’ll learn all the techniques required to knit Lucy’s fun Bubbles Scarf pattern. She’ll guide you through: a tubular cast-on in two colours, establishing a two-layer, two colour fabric and finding your most efficient method of handling two yarns. She’ll teach you how to read Double Knit (DK) charts, build patterns and keep edges closed and neat. You’ll also get an opportunity to add dimension to your fabric by stuffing your bubbles. If time permits, Lucy will show you how to complete the scarf with a tubular bind-off. Bonus: River City Yarns will purchase an electronic copy of Lucy’s Bubbles Scarf for you on the day of the workshop.

This workshop will take place at River City Yarns and may be held on our mezzanine level which is roomy but only accessible by stairs. If you have any concerns regarding your mobility on the stairs, please contact Cynthia: cynthia@rivercityyarns.com.
