That's cool. I tried it but couldn't do the double knitting, hence my recent FO's of the "siamese hat twins" style.

That's so cool. I haven't tried double knitting yet. And just when I was thinking I might, you mentioned tinking back. I'm not sure that ripping out or tinking back on such a knit would be very fun.
