I just happened across this and really, I think I found my new project, which is good because I was getting bored all alone with nothing to entertain my hands

when you are double knitting.......

you have both strands of yarn to the back, and you knit the stitch with the color you want to be on that side.

now, bring BOTH strands of yarn to the front to purl, and purl that next stitch in the color that goes on the reverse side

and the side you are looking at when you hold your knitting in front of you is the 'knit' side (as opposed to the purl side)

does that help?  the trick is moving BOTH strands of yarn as you knit 1 stitch, then purl the next stitch (just like ribbing)



I haven't tried that yet.... I'll check if that works. @_@ I knit english and not continental. >< I wonder if that makes a difference. (I really don't want to learn continental... Looks too complicated to me... That and I'm self-taught.)

it doesn't make a difference. i'm a thrower too, and pretty much self-taught as well. just pretend ur knitting with 1 yarn, but keep your pointer finger between the two yarns. thats how i did it.

good luck!

agreed - i don't knit continental either - and the tip about keeping your pointer finger between the 2 yarns was an excellent point - that's what I do, too - makes it easier to knit the alternating stitches without having to change how you're holding the yarn

Holy shiznats! That worked!! xD Only, I'm sticking both my thumb and pointer in between the yarn... (making that "L" shape kinda with my right hand.) And I'm holding hte yarn under my other three fingers. ^_^

Thanks everyone!

Adore! I've seen a few versions of this and all of them are so great. Definitely added to my already lengthy to-do list Smiley

I've heard you're supposed to twist the yarns together at the end of the row.
