After being inspired by Mai (fellow Urban Knitter), I've dived into Double Knitting. My first project is this checkerboard cap. I've had this Peruvian Wool from Elann for a while (turns out it wasn't enough of each color for what I wanted it for) so stashbusting is also a welcome benefit of this project. Here's the pics:
Where's the trouble, you ask? Well, I didn't bring along the yarn for one stitch on the inside, so there's a red dash in a field of blue. There are a couple of holes. The laddering at the dpn splits is concerning me. But most of all, if you read the pattern as I did when I had gotten this far, there are no instructions for how to finish it. None. Nada. Not a clue is granted as to how one decreases a double knit hat. I've e-mailed the author; hopefully she gets it and can help me.
