Thought I would show you something I have been working on recently. I have had a go at double knitting. I found this cute pattern on Ravelry and thought I'd give it a try. This is pretty nifty knitting where you use 2 strands of colour and the colour patterns are reversed on each side, so this side is pink background with red patterning, and the backside is red background with pink patterning.
My problem is that this is a very slow knitting experience for me. Very, very slow!!
I had a bit of trouble getting my head around the stitch and colour changes, it was quite the brain strain for a while! I had to really concentrate and make sure I am doing the right colour in the right spot, luckily this is just a potholder size piece or it could take all year! haha....
Once I got the hang of the method (thanks to some handy you tube instructions) it was a bit quicker, but not much. I am looking forward to some speedy crochet next, a couple of cushion backs should do the trick!
Have a great day!
