Pattern Description:

Because of the nature of PDF downloads, I cannot offer refunds for purchases. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns before you buy. I want to make sure you only buy a pattern you really want. Thank you so much.

Double knitting may sound daunting, but it's a lot like working ribbing, and once you get the hang of it, you may appreciate how much easier it is to work than complex colorwork. Because you are always working with both colors every two stitches, this method is perfect for stitch patterns that would otherwise require managing long floats or working in intarsia. The final fabric is much more elastic, evenly tensioned, and reversible, too.

A worsted weight cowl is a great project to try this fun technique.
