I made this scarf for my friend Darryl. He bought the yarn and just asked me make him a scarf, without nay real description of what he wanted. I have been working on a doubleknit star scarf for myself, so I decided to make him a double knit scarf. I made plain stripes for most the scarf. Each stripe is yellow on one side, and blue on the other. Since these are also our university's colors, I also put the acronym on the end. I am really happy with how it turned out.



Hopefully you guys like it too!

Very nice!  I have yet to try actual double knit - is it difficult?
And the most important question - Did he like it?

That's a really snazzy scarf! I bet it's super-warm.

Thanks! He did like it alot. He said he was afraid to wear it because he didn't want to ruin it. I told him just to wear it and if he wore it out I would make him a new one. It is really warm too since it is like two scarfs in one. Which is important since we live in the UP of Michigan, and like yesterday 22* was the high temperature.
Doubleknitting is REALLY easy once you get the initial idea of how it works. It is sorta like working 1x1 rib, but each rib has its own ball of yarn. There are some great tutorials here on craftster, which is where I learned.
