"Double" yarn?

Hi all,

The pattern says, "Use double yarn," but nowhere can I find what that means. It doesn't say "doubled yarn", but is that what it means anyway? What is 'double yarn'?:wall:

It's length, actually. Also, I forgot to mention that it's the seed/moss stitch, and I'm also having trouble figuring out how to increase without messing up the stitch pattern. Yikes!
