Off the Needles: "Happy Dots" Doubleknit Scarf


This is what I've been working on for the past 3 weeks. The pattern is "Happy Dots" and the technique is double-knitting. I took a 3-week class at Warm 'n Fuzzy in Cary, NC, to learn how to do it. The multicolored yarn is  Schoppel-Wolle Zauberball Stärke 6 and the hand-dyed silver is SweetGeorgia's  CashLuxe Fine. The length is 60 inches, but, since it's double-knitting, it's really like knitting two 60-inch-long scarves. My next double-knitting project will probably be a coaster!

Thanks, Katie! I'm so happy it's finished. It seems this project is all I've been doing for the past 3 weeks. Now I can get back to tatting!
