Hi there! This is my second attempt at double knitting and first at doing colorwork. I really like doubleknit colorwork because it hides all those loose strings that would be on the inside of the garment. This was mostly an experiment, but a friend gave me some nice local wool and I thought the color scheme said: Dinos.





The dino pattern was made by me on one of those pattern generator tools online. Unfortunately, I forgot to register and save, which also means that I did this pattern the hard way with a bunch of printouts and counting. But it worked! I just need to find a tidier cast-off that isn't so wobbly (the top of the neckwarmer). It's hard because there are twice as many stitches in doubleknit! Maybe I'll k2tog and then slip next time.
At any rate, it's super warm! Thanks for looking!
