huh? knit double 2x2 rib?
hello! i'm working on an ipod cozy but i'm a little confused about these instructions...

Using 3mm needles and double knitting wool, cast on 40 stitches and knit double 2x2 rib

...what is meant by 'knit double 2x2 rib'? are they saying to double strand? or maybe knit 2 groups of 2x2 ribbing (which would be 4 sets of ribs)?

thanks for any help!

I looked at the pic & it looks like normal 2x2 ribbing to me. Maybe they even mean literal double knitting (there's a vid on this site under advanced techniques) to make it double thick... Not sure, though. Sorry for all the non-help.

I think that's simply referring to the yarn weight - DK weight, the DK stands for Double Knitting. I think sport weight is about the same.

Yep, went to scope out the pattern n I am thinking that double knitting is referring to the yarn itself (same as wilds theory), I also think that something was lost in translation when dd transcribed the directions from mum. So I am thinking that that particular phrase isn't really sposed to be there.
It should read:
Cast on 40 sts, knit 2x2 rib for blankety blank amount of inches....
