Well done on the completion of your project! There's not a lot online. I had a lot of trouble finding anything, but Kelly Klem has done a lot. She's a member of this forum. There is also a double knitting yahoo group.

Did you manage to find instructions for doing an open bind-off?

You know, this is slightly off topic, but when you were looking for a new project, I thought of shadow or illusion knitting. Here's some examples and it's lots of fun to do and see.

That's a great way to start! Please be sure to let us know how things progress. I want to do the 2 color double knitting as in the video but I haven't gotten the hang of working with 2 yarns yet.

Thank you. I think I read here how to do an open bind off, when I did one, I slipped every other stitch to another needle, then bound off as normal. This time I actually knitted 2 tog. to form a single set of stitches, on purpose.
