Double knitting makes this cowl reversible, warm, and fully functional. Complete instructions for double knitting, including videos, are included in the pattern.

The technique is the perfect answer to the problems of Fair Isle—managing your floats and hiding the wrong side. With double knitting colorwork, you never have a wrong side, and your yarn will only ever be carried a maximum of two stitches.
