Published in May 2023, by The Crowood Press, Demystifying Double-Knitting is an entry-level guide to the wonderful and fascinating world of double-knitting, a technique that captured my heart over a decade ago, and still has me in its thrall to this day.

My name has become synonymous with this reversible, two-sided technique, and I have taught both beginners and advanced classes in the subject all over the world. For years, I have had people asking me when I was going to put my teachings into a book, and I have always wanted there to be a book on double-knitting out there, teaching it the way I want it to be taught. Well, now there is, and here it is!


In its simplest form, double-knitting is a form of colourwork that creates a two-layered, two-sided fabric, without an unattractive or float-ridden 'wrong side'. Both sides look equally beautiful, which makes many knitters think it must be far more complicated than it actually is.

Demystifying Double-Knitting takes the mystery out of the process with step-by-step explanations of the key techniques, illustrated with detailed photographs. Once the fundamentals are mastered, you can then learn to move beyond basic stocking-stitch DK, and introduce texture, shaping, and even non-mirrored designs to your work. Whether you're new to the technique or simply want to understand it better, this book provides an accessible introduction to double-knitting and a celebration of the creative opportunities it offers.

  • Step-by-step tutorials of the basic double-knitting techniques
  • Reading charts, changing colours and learning to read your knitting
  • Methods of casting on and casting off
  • Different textures in double-knitting
  • Increases, decreases, and lace double-knitting
  • Non-mirrored double-knitting
  • Five exclusive patterns, designed to help you practice the techniques
