Featuring detailed instructions on how to cast on and work in the doubleknitting technique!

Thanks to the doubleknitting technique you will end up with a fully reversible pair of mittens!. Apart from that doubleknitting is the perfect answer to problems with floats (fair isle), as the yarn will only ever be carried a maximum of two stitches. This results in a more stretchy fabric!

A coordinating hat can be found here!
