Day Eighteen of the FrankenScarf and things are getting . . . long.
I have something else pretty spectacular to look at. This:
This is Double or Nothing: Reversible Knitting for the Adventurous, a new eBook by Alasdair Post-Quinn. You can purchase an eBook version on Ravelry, as well as order a print/download combo via the author’s website.
The book has 14 patterns, all viewable here on Ravelry, but it is so, so much more! It is over 200 pages long, and has pretty much everything you need to know about every nuance of double-knitting, including step-by-step illustrated instructions for many, many techniques:
And if that were not enough, the patterns are awesome! My favorites:
This is Ferronnerie, a pretty tam that is worked in double-knitting entrelac. I didn’t know double-knit entrelac was possible, but here is proof! The sample os worked in Quince & Co. Finch, a fingering weight wool.
This necktie pattern is called Twice as Sexy, the name taken from the yarn used to work it: Buffalo Wool Company Sexy, which is a bison down/silk blend laceweight.
Waterford Crossing is a gorgeous geometric wrap, worked in The Plucky Knitter Oxford, a fingering weight merino/cashmere blend.
Anyway, if you are interested in double-knitting and what to make some really stand-out accessories, this book is for you.
And I have bene authorized to give away a copy of the eBook to one of my readers!
