Fake Double Knit
Can someone show/tell me again how they do the fake double knit to make a hat? I tried to find it in search but can't find it. I think Indgrid posted a picture of one and how she made a single hat but made it doubled for thickness. If anyone knows what I'm talking about, Thanks!

Make one hat in the round from the bottom up using a provisional cast on. When that hat is done, undo the provisional cast on and put the stitches on your circular needle and knit a second hat in the other direction. When finished, tuck one inside the other and you're done!

Thanks to you too Knitqueen. I guess you can make a reversible hat this way. Two hats in one.

Oh I'm going to give this a try. I want to make a scarf, toque and mittens for my son. He's been asking me to make one for him in yellow but I wanted to add some blue to it too..now I can do a double hat.

I just started another new one for my DH.. they are the only things he ever asks me to knit because he works outside and YES they are warm! the technique KQ described above is EXACTLY what I do. So, you can pretty much use ANY hat pattern with which to do it, just use the provisional CO.

OH.. one more thing. as you are knitting the first hat, keep good track of how many rows you knit before the dc's start... that way you are SURE the second hat will match!

I don't understand the "undo the provisional cast on". Couldn't I just pick up the stitches and start from there? I'm scared to "undo" anything.

If you pick up the stitches, you're going to have a ridge on the opposite side. It will create a bump on the inside of the hat. The provisional cast on will pop out one stitch at a time, so you can insert your needle one at a time. The starting end of the knitting doesn't want to unravel the way the top edge does, so there's no real danger of losing stitches.
