In this class we will be exploring how the basic mechanics of D-K work: looking at the structure of the fabric, and how the two sides interact with each other to create the interlocked, reversible beauty that only D-K can give you. We’ll talk a little bit about what is possible in the technique, to give you a flavour of where this foundation can eventually lead you, but we’ll mostly be concerning ourselves with getting you familiar with what yarn goes where!

We all know that intarsia can’t be done in the round.
You CAN, however, work a panel of stranded (think fair-isle) knitting in the round, where the colourwork does not go all the way round the piece, but is only worked in one specific area.

This is a technique is pioneered by Nathan and it’s really fun to do. Its applications are many and various. You can, for example, put a contrasting motif on the ankle of a sock, or a sports logo on the front of a hat.
