First Double knit project
 
Heya everyone, I decided to start my first double knit project and it's not completely smooth sailing but I love it so far :)

Good for you! I made a winter headband using double knitting when I learned. It's fun, but it's a little large and besides in southern California I'd have no use for it. :lol:

Good for you! I just got brave and did double knitting for the first time. I made a cover for my French press coffee pot. I managed to finish it and to do decreases....now I need to find out if there's an easier way than what I did. Enjoy!

Wow, GG, I'm inpressed. I've just knit a cozy for a french press but not double knitting. What a great idea.

salmonmac, it was a bigger job than I realized and now I want to go back and make a change, I closed the top and now wish I had left a hole for the handle to go through. I pulled the yarn through the stitches and tied it off so finding the end of the yarn and untying it...I will attempt later. It was slip stitch double knitting and working in the round sans instructions was challenging. I just got back on line so now I can search out videos and tutorials and....

Well double knit is when you knit using 2 strings, it creats a double thick fabric

It's knitting two sides of the fabric at one time. Although it can be done in the round creating a reversible project it can also be done flat which can create something like a double sided scarf.. It's not hard, but it takes practice together the same gauge on both sides.

This is a good example of one form of double knitting.
