Double the Pleasure

I brought my double-knit scarf along with me on a recent trip. Even though it involved 2 balls of yarn, they were of course incredibly light and compact to pack. I didn't need to bring a pattern because it's easy to memorize. Even if I had forgotten, I could easily "read" the pattern repeats I had already done like a chart.

Once I got back into the rhythm of knitting this scarf, it was pretty fun. I held the 2 yarns in separate hands. While it's not necessary to do this, it was easier to shuttle them back and forth without getting them tangled and stuck to each other this way, especially given the nature of Kidsilk Haze.

I'm enjoying the finished scarf! Details are on Ravelry.

There's an idea that's been bubbling around in my head for a different scarf design ever since I took Lucy Neatby's double knitting class at Madrona 2 years ago, but I haven't worked on it at all. Since I have plenty of KSH left over, I might swatch something. We'll see.


  1. Flat out the coolest scarf I have seen in a really really long time. LOVE IT!

    I love how your nail polish is colour coordinated to the scarf! Nice work.

  3. Thank you! @Jennifer: the polish is Victoriana from Butter London, which is awesome, BTW. While I didn't plan on coordinating my polish with my project, it does speak to how much I'm digging these colors right now!
