Double knitting

I thought I would post a few pictures of some double-knitting projects that I am working on. We won’t tackle anything this complex at the retreat but you will learn the fundamentals and then the sky is the limit!

First, I am working on Anna Dalvi’s shawl called La Toupie (hope to be finished by the retreat):

And the second project that I am working on is actually a stranded pattern but I am using the double-knit method. It is a beautiful moebius from Kate Davies and is called Funchal:

I am using fingering weight (sock yarn) for both. But at the retreat we will use thicker yarn and a simpler design. I hope everyone will love double knitting as much as I do – it is a bit slow going since you are essentially knitting everything twice but, if you are impatient, it is great for smaller projects like cowls and hats.

  1. Julie — these look great — and I’m so exicted to see how this is done in person… I should dig up that cool hat pattern I found a long time ago and thought ‘this would be a good project’! 🙂
