Although not a quick knit, this makes excellent carry-around knitting for the ardent knitter once the pattern is established. The interconnected two-layer fabric is made with a basic double-knitting technique. Options are given for both a gauntlet and a straight cuff, as well as for a closed or open casing at the wrist
This pattern features easy to follow written instructions, charts and helpful diagrams. See my instructional DVD, , to help you learn the wonder of double-layered knitting.
