I've tried my hand at double knitting before; and I really like it. But I really couldn't figure out how to incorporate color work into it. Now, I finally figured it out thanks to an online tutorial. So here's my first try at it (the color work, that is).

Awesome job! If you're interested more in double knitting, Lucy Neatby has a dvd about it, and she shows you everything you could ever want to know about it! My personal favorite thing is using a tubular cast on for double knitting.

The tutorial is at http://www.stitchdiva.com/custom.aspx?id=142. It covers pretty much everything about double knittting, including increasing and decreasing. I have seen the Uncle Argyle scarf before... and I love it. If I do attempt it, I think I would go with something neutral, like brown and beige/ tan. Sounds like I might have another project to start on! =]

Very nice. I have done a bit of double knitting - to say I have tried it - but never a full project. Used to do double weaving, long time ago, and enjoyed it. -- Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.
