Video tutorials on how to crochet cast-on and convert it to double knitting, how to handle yarns as the rounds become shorter and longer, and how to use a three-needle bind-off to close double knitting are available on the designer’s blog.

Curved scarf worked in knit one, slip one double knitting. You are making a tube shape by working back and forth rather than in the round.

Only one color is used at a time.

Shaping due to short rounds rather than short rows.

Not included in published pattern: If you cast on provisionally, you can work 4 repeats, stuff as you go, and graft to form a donut pillow, very handy for travel.
