So several ages ago (also known as last December) I decided to learn how to double knit. This is where both sides look like the stockinette or “v” side of the knitting. You may recall a post in January or April on this project.
Well I’m pleased to report that I’m finally done!
A full nine snowflakes make up this baby! There are 5 differently patterned flakes. Two larger and 3 smaller patterns.
To me double knitting is very beautiful, but it seems like it takes so much more time, basically its like you are doing a 1×1 rib, but you also have to pay attention to the detail of which stitch in the pattern facing you and the edges so that the two sides are hooked together and not open at the edges.
And that’s one project that can go on the Christmas gifts completed pile!
Speaking of things completed… I also knit up a second Spring Thaw for a friend of mine who was admiring the first. I believe it is now presently touring part of Canada.
