Double Knitting Patterns For Ladies
Many people think that double knitting is two colors knitting designs, or knitting with two colors. Others think that double knitting means the kind of yarn you use. The rest of the world that is not the US calls worsted weight yarn “double knit.” While these meanings are both true, it is so much more than that. Below you will find some patterns using two colors, and they are all double knitting patterns for ladies, or two colors knitting designs.

What is really meant by “Double Knit” or double knit knitting patterns, though, is to use two colors at exactly the same time to knit something that is reversible. This means you have two “right sides” and no wrong side. You can think how great this would be for your blankets or scarves. Imagine creating a blanket in two beautiful colors which is totally reversible.
There are many tutorials online teaching this, and the best free one I found is here:
As you can see, you can really apply it to any pattern where you want the item to be reversible.
You will need your knitting kit for a double sided knitting project, and double the yarn.
If you have a finished project where you applied this technique, please send photos to share with us.
