Looks like knit on both sides
Hi,

My sister has a scarf that looks like "knit" on both sides. I saw something on Knitty Gritty but I can't find it on thier website and I don't know the name of the stitch.

Does anyone know how to do that stitch?

Thanx
Ellen

Welcome to the forum!

Scroll down to Double Knitting on this page. I think that might be what you're looking for.

I'm also trying to do double knitting but I somehow always ended up doing a seed stitch... What am I doing wrong?

See how the words "this page" in my previous post are in a different color? That means it'll open up the link if you click on it. You can also get there by clicking on the "Advanced Techniques" tab at the top of this page.

Sorry, I didn't see the difference in the color. I'm color blind.

I did look at how she was knitting, that's not how her scarf is. It does look like how the woman did it on the video, but it's not that thick.

It's done something like k1, sl st to right needle, k1, I do even amount of stitches, but when I k1 every other stitch on the next row, it looks more like a purl than a knit.

I don't know if I'm explaining it right and I know I am definately doing it wrong.

Thanx for your help....

Ellen

do you happen to remember what the name of the scarf was, when it aired, what other projects were in the show? anything like that?

I find doing searches on www.diynetwork.com can be kind of tedious but if you know more about the show, someone who watches might be able to point you in the right direction.

Oops! Sorry Ellen. My brother is color blind too, so I should know better. Anyway, I'll try to do links in bold so they show up better.

Do you happen to have a picture of your sister's scarf?

ETA: There is a way to do double knit where only one side is worked at a time. E.g., for Row 1, you would work your Side A stitches, while slipping the Side B stitches. Then, for Row 2, you work the Side B stitches, while slipping the Side A stitches. The technique that Amy demonstrates it is faster since you do both sides at once, but not everyone likes to do it that way since it requires holding both yarns at the same time. I know you said the fabric is not that thick, but could it be possible that the scarf just uses a lighter weight yarn?
