A lesson in Double Knitting

Yarn: Plymouth Yarn Encore Colorspun Worsted

10/14/09 Cast on. Trying to learn the whole ‘double knitting’ thing. Got this great yarn and a really COOL scarf pattern that is double knitting ….. so…. gotta learn how first. I thought this would be a good intro project, and I’m glad I’m doing it, reading from the chart, on the flip side of the knitting is a TRIP! It’s like knitting in 3D, don’t know how else to describe it. This frog pattern called for cotton and I have some left over Encore from my Hanne vest, so I’m using it and not worried about ‘gauge.’ So, in other words, this pot holder is HUGH!!!
