I'd worked up this pattern a while ago to use for a Double Knitting workshop but then it never materialized. Finally got my butt in gear and finished up the pattern publish though!

I really love the different double knitting techniques and there's so many things you can use them for. I wanted to cover several different ones yet still have a useful item when finished, thus this little coin purse.



A bit about the free pattern. The body of the purse is worked back and forth on two needles with a single strand of yarn and produces a tube like circular knitting, but with a closed bottom. The pattern offers three different options for the closed tube cast-on.

The flap is worked with a two stranded double knit technique. Two different colored yarns produce a double sided flat piece of knitting with the color work pattern of your choice (9 different charts to choose from). Optional shaping is also covered.

Hope to inspire a few people to try something new. Cheesy

Looks great. I was thinking about trying double knitting today - maybe this is a sign?

Oh, I have to try that! I've tried the technique that produces a pouch, but I've been wanting to try the other too.
