Lost Arts studio

A lot of the fiber arts I enjoy are things like tatting, netmaking, chair caning, and even weaving, where people will come up to me when I demonstrate and solemnly tell me, "That's a lost art."

Double Knitting Knit-Along, continued

Cast on as before, for either an open or closed tube. Or if you prefer, you can continue using your "First Method" tube.

Knit-side-out Tube, Second Method:

*Purl one stitch with yarn in front.
Pass the yarn between the points of the needles.
Slip one stitch as if to purl with yarn in back.
Pass yarn between the points of the needles.*

Somewhat counter-intuitively, this tube also forms knit side out. The yarn travels around the tube counter-clockwise if you are looking down at the top of the tube. Two rows equal one round.

If you alternately knit two rows (one round) with the first method, then two rows with this method, a slit forms in the tube.
