Finally finished my quatrefoil reversible double knit socks! It’s my first complicated pattern I wrote for double knitting and I did my best to explain my process. Pattern available here. I can’t wait to give these to my grandma, they’ll keep her feet so warm. Double knitting means there’s two socks attached to one another, so it’s doubly warm! I’ll probably have to make a pair for myself next (…and the husband, and my mom, and plenty of other people, too!)
Ok now I really need to learn double knitting (I’ll practice with something simpler first though because these look like epic level knits), because I want to make these! They look so great and I bet they feel super comfy and soft. Thanks for sharing the pattern!
Maybe its because I had a bad experience but I love the look of double knit but absofuckinglutely hated doing it. It was like pulling teeth.
"This enormous blanket is knit on 1 1/2” PVC pipe, using slightly-felted superwash (yes, you read that right) unspun wool roving. This pattern is more of a tutorial, as the pattern is: CO 28, k2 p2, BO!
If you’ve ever wanted to knit in a gigantic gauge, this pattern teaches you where to find the raw materials, how to create “yarn” and “needles” from unusual objects, and finally how to knit up your very own giganto-blanket!”
