Double Knitting

I taught myself the double knitting technique over the summer and, using motifs from a jumper I designed for machine knitters many years ago, I came up with a ‘Pink Pigs Scarf’ and ‘Cosy Sheep Cowl’.  The patterns for both are available in my Etsy shop and on Ravelry.

The double knitting technique produces a piece of knitting which is double sided and double thickness, a bit like two separate pieces being sewn together back to back, stocking stitch is uppermost on both sides with the colours reversed on the ‘wrong side’ – although you end up with two right sides!  The two sides or layers are knit at the same time.  If you have not used this technique before all becomes clear as you go.

The motifs were originally designed for this jumper back in 2001!
