this is my first double knitting project, so i wanted to show you some photos even before it’s finished. which will be a looong time from now as this is going really slowly 😉
the pattern is „ramona“ by julia mueller by the way.
i like double knitting, you don’t have the trouble carrying the yarn in the back that you have with other colourwork. and double knitting makes a lovely, warm, double fabric. and the mittens will be fully reversible!
in the beginning i had serious trouble concentrating on the pattern, as you don’t really see instantly if you made a mistake, due to the fact that all the stitches, for back and front, are next to each other on the same needle. i also made life particularly complicated as i knit the black parts of the pattern in white and the white parts in blue/green because i thought it would look nicer. which i still think it does, but it makes you really have to concentrate to get everything right. no way watching tv while knitting
i’m using wollmeise yarn by the way. i’m always saving my precious skeins for really special projects. i think the greenish/blueish yarn (colourway „pfefferminz prinz“) looks great with the undyed yarn.
