There is double knitting, with 2 right sides that uses a double cast-on. Like a sandwich with the "wrong" side inside.
There is also provisional cast-on. Where you knit in one direction (say up). Then come back & remove the base stitches, and work in the other direction (say down.) I think you are asking about provisional cast on.
Let me look for a link to show you how. I think there is one on the banner of this site.
