Just another cat obsessed knitter

More Double Knitting

I knitted this ‘Prowling Cats’ Cowl using the double knitting technique in the round on a circular needle.  I found following the chart for the cat motifs a lot easier in the round than when using this technique for my ‘Cosy Sheep’ Cowl, which was knitted flat on two needles.

When knitting in the round you read every row of the chart from right to left.  The first stitch of each pair is knit in the colour shown on the chart whilst the second stitch of the pair is purled in the opposite colour, this applies to every row!  So a lot less confusing than knitting flat, when odd rows are worked the same as in the round, but for even rows you read the chart from left to right and have to remember to knit the first stitch of the pair in the opposite colour to that shown and purl the second stitch in the colour shown.

I have now published the pattern which you can find in my online shops:

  1. I am no longer positive where you are getting your info, however good topic. I must spend a while studying more or working out more. Thank you for wonderful information I used to be on the lookout for this information for my mission.

  2. You really make it seem really easy along with your presentation but I find this topic to be really something that I think I would never understand. It seems too complex and very vast for me. I am taking a look forward on your subsequent submit, I will try to get the cling of it!

    • It really isn’t too bad once you get the hang of it! I will be posting again regarding the double knitting technique, hopefully next week as I have some notes I can share 🙂
