"Knitting double, also known as double knitting, is a technique by which knitters can create two fabrics at the same time, and this guidebook includes step-by-step instructions with photographs to help master this method. Crafters learn how the front and back are knitted simultaneously and the stitches are worked in pairs. While the "right side" of the fabric normally faces outward, and the "wrong side" faces the inside of the work, double knitting creates the illusion of a fabric with no wrong side. More than 30 projects are included, beginning with basic patterns and simpler projects, such as hats or scarves, and moving into the more complex, such as mittens, potholders, and even cell phone cozies. This book is the perfect resource for the intermediate to advanced knitter looking to expand their repertoire" -- from publisher's web site.

This was an okay book, but I'm sure there are better double knitting books out there. Some of the patterns were nice, but many were too cartoony or childish for my liking. I thought the scrunchie pattern was a neat idea, but it was a little vague to follow. I'm unsure if this is because the designer uses an abbreviated style or if it is an issue of translation.

The book includes a technique section at the back which is a helpful reference for someone already familiar with the basics of double knitting. If you're new to the technique then some of the sections lack a little detail and will need supplementation from other tutorials.
