two colors issue
Alright, I'm doubleknitting a scarf as yuo'll see in the pictures....however, one side(the black side) appears fine to me...but the red side has black sliding over into it? What am I doing wrong?

Hi Brittany,

With double knitting, I always try really hard to knit as tightly as I can. The fact that you're moving the yarn from front to back with every stitch tends to make double knitting a lot looser than your normal gauge, and can lead to "show through" if you don't tighten up. I also usually knit on needles at least two and sometimes three sizes smaller than what I'd use if I was doing "normal" one sided knitting.

The only other tihings I can think of is that the black is shedding A LOT, or that the dye is rubbing through (though that's more common with RED yarn)

Good luck!

Mary
