Double Knit

I finally finished knitting something, and its a 6in by 6.5in rectangle. It is twice as thick and reversable! I tried out some double knitting. I like how it looks but it takes a while. If you can knit and purl, you can do this. If you want to give it a try you just cast on twice as many stitches as you want it to be wide. As you go, you knit the front side stitches and purl the back. So its K1, P1 all the way. The main difference is that you bring both strands to the back when you knit and bring both to the front when you purl. So in my rectangle I knit all the green and purled the purple in the first row, when I turned it around for the second row, I knit all the purple and purled the green.
