Learn how to double knit this cozy earband which is not only extra thick, but can also be reversed to show a second design. With this simple striped design you’ll learn the basics of double knitting and then you can graduate to more complex designs, or just keep the simple stripes and incorporate a variety of yarns. You need to know how to cast on, bind off, knit and purl, and be comfortable knitting in the round.
