Thanks for the kind words!  I'm happy to share something I love to do. 

indigo_roses- give it a try.  www.knittinghelp.com is an amazing resource.  I've learned a lot from the website, and it has videos to help with just about everything.  I used to be a crocheter, but I like being able to do both.

lanyu- If you don't make the pattern and just knit on one side and purl on the other you will have two solid colored pieces but they will still be connected at the sides.  If you didn't twist the sides I suppose you could separate them.  I've never tried.  Making the pattern interlocks the two sides.  My goal with double knitting is not to knit two identical pieces, but one piece with reverse colors on either side.

atsuko-  I checked my original post with the double helix scarf and fortunately I remembered to include the web site where I got the pattern.  http://magknits.com/May06/patterns/rosalind.htm   I just copied the chunky pattern since the dk pattern was larger.  I copied it onto regular graph paper, but once I got to the top of the pattern I realized I had to do the reverse for the next chunk.  So I flipped my graph paper over and traced the pattern onto the back.  As long as you remember what side you're on you'll be set.

Gah, confusing! Double knitting and entrelac turn my brain to mush, but I'll try again with the help of your tutorial. Thank you :3

Then we should feed our jewelry to the sea
For diamonds do appear to be
Just like broken glass to me.

I am SOO glad you did this, I was wondering how to double knit for a long time now, and this is GREAT!
THanks so much!

This is great, maybe I'll work up the courage to try it!

This is a great tutorial, thanks so much for posting it! I saw a lovely checkered scarf on knitty that uses this method, but I was so unfamiliar with this technique I had no idea what I was doing. This makes it crystal clear! Cheesy

Extrapolate that!

Knitted the first few rows and realized mine is coming out inside out? At first I thought it was garter, but the front and back sides sorta made a pocket and i looked in and the stockinette is on the inside. Any tips how to fix me? haha
