Double Knitting Uses Charts To Create Double-Sided Mirror-Image Color Designs

Pre-Order Charts Demystified for $1In our soon-to-be released Charts Demystified video class, we teach you the amazing technique of double-knitting as part of your 7-hour education on how to read and knit from charts like a pro.

In the class, we’ll be making a simple heart design (which, for beginners, is enough of a challenge as you learn to interpret a double-knitting chart).

I’ll teach you how to set up for double knitting, how to keep your edge stitches neat, and how to work the background and foreground colors so you come out with a perfect mirror-image design every time.

After you work through our Charts Demystified video course, you will be able to create any double-knit design at all, including a design you make from a photo or other image and turn into a chart.

What inspired Deb to create these picture-perfect designs? As Deb told me in a Facebook conversation about these beautiful creations, “I realized that you can double-knit any pattern, so I tried.”

She shared that each of the blankets takes about 100 hours or 6-8 weeks knitting a few rows a day. And that each of the gift recipients absolutely loves his or her blanket.

How to Make Your Own Charts From a Photo

To create your own double-knitting charts (and blankets) from photos, you can use Deb’s favorite tools: Lunapic to make the photos black and white, and then Stitch Board or Photo Pearls to turn them into charts.
