This pattern is added on to the article “Double Knitting” in the Beyond the Basics section and was available on the website as well.

This is basically a tutorial on Double Knitting, with How To instructions, and a Hotpad sample pattern to try it out on. You will need two balls (in contrasting colors) of worsted weight yarn.

A Note About Gauge: The gauge you get with double knitting is different from the gauge you get using the same yarn and needles for single knitting. It is difficult to get a tight gauge, even on small needles. Therefore, take the time to work a generous test piece and block it before you measure it for gauge.
