Although not a quick knit, this makes excellent carry-around knitting for the ardent knitter once the pattern is established. The interconnected two-layer fabric is made with a basic double-knitting technique. Options are given for both a gauntlet and a straight cuff, as well as for a closed or open casing at the wrist
This pattern features easy to follow written instructions, charts and helpful diagrams. See my instructional DVD, Double Knitting Delight, to help you learn the wonder of double-layered knitting.
