Double knitting can be done with only one strand and one color, that's the only way I know how to do it. The way you describe working the rows - k1, sl 1 and repeat - is how it's done. You're basically knitting the sts that were slipped on the previous row and slipping the ones that were knit. Or it can be done in ribbing or other st patterns.

The tutorials in this blog show several different ways to double knit including Single Yarn Double knitting, even though her samples show two colors, and she also explains how to work in seed stitch.

hi Suzee!
Thanks for the link. I had been to that blog before but not this article.

I had read about the knitting in the round on straight needles. That is part of what inspired me for this.

Oh, the difference I make is the knitting through the back loop for the edge to make it "fold" instead of turn.

Other than her knitting I am not making a complete tube, that is my point. But maybe I should call it "double knit hems"? I am really searching for a term to describe it.

Even if it is not new at all (I was expecting that, that's why I asked), it still is practical and looks interesting, I think.

Yes, it's a way to make a double thick scarf and one that has stockinette on both sides. But tedious....
