Knitting Help – Double
- Cast on an even number of stitches using the long-tail method
- *With the working yarn in front, insert the right needle into the first stitch on the left needle from back to front (as if to knit), and then bring the working yarn over the top of the right needle (as if to purl)
- Slip this stitch off of the left needle; with the working yarn now in back, repeat from * for each stitch across
- You should now have half as many stitches on your right needle as you started with on your left
- Now, holding both ends of your work together so that the wrong sides are facing out, begin
knittingeach stitch together with its corresponding stitch from the other end of your work, as if you were grafting them together
- When you reach the end, cut both yarns and pull them through the remaining loops to secure them

How Do You Do a Double Stitch in
A double stitch is created by working two stitches into the same space. This can be done by Knit 2 Together (K2tog), or Slip, Slip, Knit (SSK).
These two methods will produce a left-leaning or right-leaning decrease, respectively. If you need to make a more drastic decrease, you can work three stitches together (K3tog) or Slip 1, Slip 1, Knit 2 Together, Pass Slipped Stitches Over (S1SK2P). Like the previous two decreases, K3tog will create a left-leaning decrease while S1SK2P creates a right-leaning decrease.
What is the Purpose of Double
How Do You Double Knit a Single Color?
When it comes to
So, how do you double knit a single color? The first step is to choose the yarn that you want to use for your project. It is important to choose a yarn that is thick enough to hold up against the weight of two strands of yarn.
Once you have chosen your yarn, you will need to wind it into two balls. You will then need to cast on twice the number of stitches that you would normally cast on for a project. Once you have your stitches casted on, you will then begin
You will alternate between these two strands as you knit each stitch. As you knit each row, be sure to pull the strand from the back over the strand from the front before
Continue working in this manner until your fabric reaches the desired length or width. When you are finished, bind off all of your stitches and weave in any loose ends. And there you have it!
Your very own double-knit fabric!
If you want to learn how to double
To start, cast on the same number of stitches with both yarns. Then, knit one stitch with the first yarn and purl one stitch with the second yarn. Repeat this pattern until you reach the end of the row.
When you turn your work, always knit the stitch that was purled on the previous row and vice versa. This creates a fabric that looks the same on both sides and is very warm and cozy. Double
