Double knitting?
Does anyone have a link to the Knitty article (or any article, really) about that method of kind of double knitting to make something nice and thick and warm? It isn't just doubling up the yarn, but a different way of actually stitching, I think.

I just finished scanning a book I found at the library today: Twined
Knitting by Brigitta Dandanell-Ulla Danielsson. If you are interested in this it has some beautiful patterns, as well as old pictures and history of this type of knitting.
