Class Overview

Why limit beautiful stitch patterns to a single side of your project when you could create a breathtaking look and feel on both? Join expert Melissa Leapman and learn reversible knitting stitches that create a variety of popular stitch patterns. Melissa will begin by teaching you simple knit-and-purl stitch patterns before moving on to demonstrate dazzling double-sided lace step by step. Then, bring textural intrigue to both sides of your knits as you conquer reversible cables — Melissa's favorite. Wondering how to capture colorwork on both sides? You'll find out how to create reversible colorwork such as double knitting, and Melissa will even end class by showing you how to design unique patterns you'll be proud to say you dreamed up on your own.
