Foundations of Double Knitting
Double your knitting pleasure as author and designer Lucy Neatby teaches you a knitting technique you’ll want to duplicate again and again.

Designer, author and colorful personality Lucy Neatby will introduce you to the fun and challenge of double knitting. Lucy unravels the enigma behind the technique that allows you to knit two layers simultaneously on the same needles. She couples humor with a great love of knitting as she guides you through traditional and tubular cast-ons and bind-offs. Practice double knitting on double-pointed needles and in the round. Learn to create parallel increases and decreases, pockets, sock heels and more. Knit in one color or two colors at the same time. Your double knitting creations will be so nice, you’ll knit them twice!
