Double Knitting Question

by peneve4

I'm doing double knit with one color (one strand of yarn) slipping every other stitch, how can I keep the sides open so it will be like two pieces layered joined only at the bottom (beginning).

YOUR ASNWER


To be honest, I don't think you can. But I could be wrong.

I haven't done a lot of double knitting and am having trouble visualizing how you would do it and keep the sides open so I am moving the question to my open questions page in the hope that one of my visitors will have an answer for you.

Vertical slits impossible when knitting in the round
by: Anonymous

Double knitting with a single strand of yarn by slipping alternating stitches is just another method of working in the round. It is probably the only method that is easy to use with straight single pointed needles.

As knitting in the round creates a spiral, and a vertical slit requires the absence of horizontal strands, it is not possible to create vertical slits without either switching to flat knitting, or cutting steeks.

open sides on double knit
by: wolfie

The most direct way to achieve open
edges in one color double knit is to knit
two of the same yarn color. Just turn and
go without twisting the edges.

knitting at her site or on amazon.
