A Tubular Cast On for Double Knitting.

Hey Kids!

I was thinking I would try an educational post today.

For reasons I am not entirely sure about, I have been doing a lot of double knitting lately.  It is a great technique, which can produce some beautiful pieces. Below is a little photo tutorial for a tubular cast on for double knitting.  Although I have shown the cast on for two colours, it works as well for a single colour cast on and for multiple other stitches, such as ribbing and brioche stitch.  If you find it useful, let me know and I will be happy to post more tutorials for other techniques.
