I just wanted to say I am a month-long self-taught knitter that learned through this site. I have read the forums and found answers to many of my beginner questions. But I have one that I can't seem to find an answer to. . .
I found a pattern for a baby blanket that I would like to make for my niece or nephew that will be arriving in November. The pattern is very simple, but here it what it calls for:
Yarn: Seven balls of double knit yarn (approximately 1,050 yards)
Knitting needles: 4.50 mm/ 7 US OR SIZE TO OBTAIN TENSION
Tension: 1" = 5 stitches using garter stitch.
What is double knit yarn?? I think I looked at every kind of yarn today and still can't figure it out!! Is this a type? Brand? Am I missing something? Or am I lacking more sleep than I think??
Please help! Thank you!
PS-I can post pictures of my small completed projects, but my camera is mad at me right now.
