Two at a time doubleknit socks, worked inside out to produce harlequin socks.

Pattern uses English and continental knitting techniques to create inside-out double knitting: two-at-a-time socks without the need to be constantly moving the yarn backwards and forwards. And the different colours mean you’re much less likely to twist your strands. Full instructions included.

Because you’re knitting both socks at the same time, they’ll match perfectly in shape - no need for keeping track of what you did in the first sock to make sure the second sock is the same, and no Second Sock Syndrome.

The setup is a bit tricky, but once you’re going there’s nothing to remember and nothing to think about, but the knitting is still interesting enough to be much more fun than plain stocking stitch.

And it’s quite exciting when observers notice you’re knitting with two strands at once, and ask what’s going on, and you’re able to pull the inside sock out to demonstrate two socks joined at the current row! (This really happened to me several times while knitting them.)

Yarn requirements: 50g of sock yarn in each of C1 and C2
