Welcome to the Double Deco Knit Along!
Whether you are starting with us right away on Wednesday October 1st or playing catch-up, this timeline will show you when to complete each section and what techniques we will be looking at on the blog. We'll be updating this post as the weeks go by, so bookmark it and check back for links to the more detailed technique posts.
Week 1 (October 1-7): Cast on!
Technique talk: knitted cast-on, picking up stitches, counting garter ridges
-Choose your colors, purchase the pattern, (use coupon code DoubleDecoKAL for 25% off! ), and look over the directions to familiarize yourself with the structure. If anything is confusing, make a note of it. We may cover the issue along the way, but always feel free to ask!
-Cast on your color A stitches for Wing 1, and start knitting! Check out the Week 1 post for a more in-depth look at techniques.
Week 2 (October 8-14): finish section 1 of Wings 1 and 2.
Technique talk: carrying multiple colors up the sides of the work
All 4 colors will be in play, so you'll get practice carrying them up the side of your knitting and using that clothes pin! Check out the Week 2 post here.

Technique talk: All about increases
As always, your questions and progress photos are welcome.
