    Any Double Knitters here?

    Hi I am interested in Double knitting right now, I have finished a hot pad, and a couple of reversible scarves. I am moving on to double knit hats and finger-less gloves. I am aiming to do a blanket in the future. Have you done any double knitting?

    I teach double knitting. I mostly teach students to make pot holders and coasters in my classes. Your projects are lovely!

      Nice projects. I have done double knitting in the past but not for a while.

        I'm going between brioche or double knit for a project when I finish my socks... Or I may do another set socks because my husband loves them... Then definitely time to change

            Solsken, I could never have the discipline for one project at a time, I move between projects as the spirit moves me... I have sweaters, socks, hats and DBL knit fingerless-gloves right now.... !

              Hi! I actually have a separate post asking for help with some double knitting. I should have started with something smaller than a blanket! Your projects look really nice!

                the small project I started with was very challenging, but reasoned after I completed it I should be able to tackle anything. I do have a blanket in my future as well, Santa and Sleigh...

              I have only done 1 double knitting project, but I really enjoyed it.

ID:	6773 I decided to have a go at double knitting - start as you mean to go on right? - with Il Burato, a sockmatician pattern. I'm now 20/28ths of the way through but this was a couple of patterns ago

                  That is beautiful! It's so intricate, I can't imagine taking it on with young kids in the house... but someday I'd love to try.

                My mom is a double knitter. She said that she was spending too much money on yarn, so she started double knitting to slow her self down. Haha. Love everyone's pics♡

                  I've enjoyed double-knitting... mostly small projects: decorative heels of socks, scarves, doll items.

                    I used to do quite a bit of double knitting. The Knit Star Scarf from Crafty Chick Knits was one of my favorite quick and easy projects. This is the one I made for my son who was in the Navy. The pattern is out of print now, but I found it intact on the Internet Archive's Wayback Machine. If you'd like to check out the pattern, I've pasted the link below:

                      I know how to double knit, but I haven’t actually completed a pattern using it... just started a coaster to teach myself and frogged it. :-)
                      Knitting is happening here! ❤️

                        Double knitting is on my want-to-learn list. I actually signed up for a double knit afghan KAL a few years ago to learn, but life got in the way and it didn't happen. I am more likely to stick to things and learn if a KAL with a supportive group is involved.
