Learn Double Jacquard in Two days
The technique ‘Jacquard’ generally refers to a patterned multicoloured fabric which has no floats on the reverse side, and is created by knitting on both the main and ribber bed. Large floats are often seen on the reverse of single bed punchcard patterns which can limit the end function of the fabric with floats catching and snagging easily. This technique allows you to design patterns with no restrictions in relation to floats creating a stable and functional fabric.
Within the two days we will specifically be looking at two colour jacquard knitting delving in to how the patterns are knitted and created. We will look at how you can develop the designs further using three and four colours and how you would go about knitting and designing these in your own time.
By the end of the course you will leave with a range of samples that document your journey and exploration of the technique confident to continue knitting in your own time.
Classes are small to allow for techniques to be covered fully.
All materials are provided during this course. However I recommend bringing a camera and notebook to write your own personal notes.
