Double or Nothing : Double-Knitting Giveaway!

Double or Nothing!
Double or Nothing!

Alasdair Post-Quinn is the undisputed king of double knitting. His first book Extreme Double-Knitting enticed a legion of knitters into more complex double-knitting that they thought they’d ever knit. He’s back this December with Double or Nothing: Reversible Knitting for the Adventurous.  First covering and expanding on some of the content of his earlier book, Alasdair then dives into double-knit textures, double-knit intarsia, double-knit entrelac, double-knit cables and double-knit lace. New to double-knitting? You can learn from the beginning. Love double-knitting already? Up the ante — Double or Nothing!


Alasdair is offering a copy of his new book as a giveaway and he’s adding his Craftsy class, Adventures in Double Knitting to add even more double-knittingto your life.

    I already have Alasdair’s Craftsy class but would love to stretch even further. There looks like some neat designs and creative ideas in the book. Thanks for letting us know about this release.

    So gorgeous! I’ve done a little double knitting, but nothing that elaborate. More skills to try and I do love Craftsy.

  6. Lisa

    Wow! I have never tried double knitting but those designs are incredible! I would love to try this book and technique.

    Double-knitting: always loved the look, never had the courage to try it. What a great way to get over that hump!

  8. Tracy Pinkelton

    Oh wow. I loved his previous book and look forward to checking out this one. He does some amazing art.

    Those designs look wonderful. Only dabbled with double-knitting so far, but am quite intrigued with it.

    Does this use a specific knitting style to make the DK work? The patterns look interesting and enjoyable

    Every time I have tried double knitting in the past I end up with two separate pieces of fabric, no idea how, would be lovely to figure it out and this book seems like all that and a bag of chips.

    I feel like I should come up with a double entendre for this but I can’t. Would love to win though.

    I finally finished my first double-knit item, just a basic hat that I converted from a stranded pattern. I’d love to go to the next level with double-knitting and Alasdair’s patterns are just out of this world!
