Extreme DK Cover

My book, entitled Extreme Double-Knitting: New Adventures in Reversible Colorwork, is now available for purchase at Cooperative Press and at fine local yarn shops and bookstores everywhere. If you buy your physical copy directly at Cooperative Press, you will get a PDF copy sent to you for free. In this increasingly paperless world, it seems folks want to be able to read their books on their portable devices. While this book -- full color at nearly 200 pages -- renders beautifully on an iPad or Android tablet, it may not give you the best viewing experience on a grayscale reader like a standard Kindle. If there is enough demand and we decide to produce a grayscale-compatible version, I'll post about it on my blog, Facebook, and Twitter. View all the patterns in the book on Ravelry (account may be required)

What Other Designers Are Saying ... (from the back cover)

"A brilliant book, bound to become a classic work. Acquiring these double-layer techniques will enhance all aspects of your knitting life. Extreme Double Knitting is a very thorough and clearly explained approach to this fascinating area of knitting. Even if you do not yet see yourself reaching some of the more extreme feats of double-layer knitting offered here, you will be gently enticed to expand your repertoire of skills as far as you wish, with plenty more brain candy awaiting you."

"There are floods of knitting books that beguile with pretty, ingenious patterns. A precious few push back the boundaries of an entire technique. Extreme Double-Knitting does both, exceptionally. A tour-de-force."

—Franklin Habit, the-panopticon.blogspot.com

"In this delicious guide to the subterranean wonderland of double knitting, Alasdair illuminates user-friendly and innovative techniques of layering color, texture, and design."
