String of Pearls Scarf with yarns with different textures.

String of Pearls Scarf with yarns with different textures.

Before we move off onto another topic, here is one last look at texture created by two different yarns used in a simple double knit design. This scarf starts out with simple vertical stripes with the option to spice them up as you feel more comfortable with your chosen two yarn technique. When you first start double knitting IMHO lots of practice is beneficial before embarking on complex patterning. In this example the yarns are slightly different weights resulting in the woollier yarn receding slightly. In addition, on the right hand side of the picture, the contrasting stripe is also reverse stocking stitch. The lower right picture shows the scarf with additional patterning that may be started at any time.
