Greetings to Interweave Knits readers!

Hello! If you’re new here after having seen my article in Interweave Knits, it’s good to see you!. Please feel free to leave a comment to this post — I’m curious to see how many people are coming in after reading IK. I didn’t realize it was out already until I started hearing kudos from subscribers.

I’ve also been getting a number of questions asking after patterns pictured in the article. Since it’s evidently not clear, let me just reiterate: All the patterns you’ve seen in the article and most of the ones you can see on this blog (except those for which I expressly say otherwise) will be published in the book. If you want to be among the first to know when the book is ready for pre-order (and when it’s shipping), you can join my mailing list in the upper right corner of this blog.

Thanks for your interest and stay tuned!

  1. The article in Interweave was Great! I had only heard about double knitting before in a vague way. I read the whole article and just downloaded two patterns. The falling blocks hat is the coolest thing I’ve seen in a long time and I hope it will win the hat category at the fair next year! Of course, I’ll have to learn to double knit first…but I believe in learning by doing..so I’m going to knit the four winds hat as a first project and then knit the falling blocks and hope it wins a blue.

    Thanks for the great patterns and instructions. I’m so glad you wrote out how to do the cast on because with dial up Internet, I can’t view videos.

  8. Hi – I saw your article in IK and really like the Falling Blocks hat. I signed up to be notified when your book comes out, but haven’t yet received an email verifying my email address. Anyway, I hope to see your book soon!

  9. GJ — I’m looking at the most recent additions on the mailing list and I don’t see anyone with those initials. Could it be you entered your email address wrong, or forgot to hit submit, or something like that? If I were you, I’d try joining again. If your email address is already in the database, I promise you won’t get duplicate emails.

  10. Alasdair,
    Great article! So nice to see all the wonderful things you have going on. Having not seen you since high school I was very surprised to see your article in the most recent IK. I’ve been knitting for years now but have just gotten into double knitting and seeing all that you have done is very inspiring.

  11. Congratulations on the IK article! I especially liked your explanation of using more than the standard two colors. I love your designs.

  12. Thanks for the great article. I’m anticipating a move to Colorado so this technique is perfect and timely, so many hats and mittens to knit! Now I just need to figure out how to transfer the fiddlehead mittens pattern from helloyarn.com to a double knit tam. Thanks again.

  13. I really am glad that your article was published in IN knits. Double knitting looks like so much fun. I have been looking something that incorporates color and warmth. My children will all be getting hats for their backpacking trips. I have signed up for notification for your book. Can’t wait to add it to my library.

  14. I read the article in IK and can’t wait to get my hands on the book. Really exciting!

  15. Just read the article in IK and did the practice swatch. Can’t wait for the book, desperate to make a bag. Love totebags, hate that they need to be lined for cosmetic or sturdiness reasons.

  16. Exciting news in IK that you are writing a book (I signed up to be notified). I’ve been a fan of your work for years on Ravelry, and I love to double knit. I can’t wait to find out how to not only double knit but double knit in two patterns and three or four colors as well!

  17. Just read your great article and now I’ll be waiting impatiently for the book 🙂

    Greetings from Switzerland

  19. Alasdair — I saw the article in IK and was so pleased for you. Eagerly awaiting publication of your book.

  20. I subscribe to IK in New Zealand, and my Fall copy arrived on Friday. I was delighted to read your article and hear of the forthcoming book, as I’m booked into a double-knitting workshop in Napier (New Zealand) at the end of the month. Will try your exercise beforehand, so that I get some idea of what I’ll be doing on the day!

  21. You wanted to know who came here after reading your article in IK. I love double-knitting. I’m peachymelba on Ravelry and I’ve done a couple of scarves using that method. I also practiced making a little bag with seed stitch stripes. I hope the book comes out soon! I’m so looking forward to some different techniques.

  22. Yes I’m here because of your article – found it very interesting and can’t wait to try to sample knit you showed in the article – never tried double knitting before. Looking forward to your book.

  23. I loved the article and the photos were great, I am looking forward to exploring your book.

  24. Nice to get to know you!
    I’m a male knitter in Sweden – and our copy och Interweave Knits – we subscribe since several years – arrived today. Thrilled by your article – want to do DK!
    I’m not a blogger or avid blog-reader, but I’ll follow you! I’m on Ravelry though – “Knotting”. At present struggling more with spinning than knitting. Lokking forward to your book!/

  26. Hi! I found you through the IK article. My best friend and I both love the Whorl’d Tree bag. I’ve never tried double knitting but I will definitely check out your book when it becomes available.

  27. I loved your article! I saw the first version of the hat on Ravelry some time ago and fell in love with it. I followed the link to cooperativepress but can’t find any information at all about your book there. I will definitely buy it when it is out.
    Congratuations! Your work is amazing.

  28. Yet another person directed to your site from IK. I’ve done some double knitting in the past, but what really caught my eye was the mention that you live in Boston and game. Also that you have a cat. Also that you’re teaching workshops at Mind’s Eye Yarns, which is all of three blocks from where I live. Way to go!

  29. Read the article, then watched all the videos. Thanks for the intriguing look into the possibilities of double-knitting.

  30. I am ordered the book ! I have ben making the double knit hats for 6 or 7 years now and love where you are taking it .I just gave 17 hats to the school ,the double knit is great for our alaska winters.
