I’ve got a short question for you. Sorry in advance for any language mistakes - English is not my native language - but as most knitting patterns I plan to work with in the next time are in English, I thought I might as well try to learn all necessary vocabulary right now.
As soon as my current project is finished (why on earth did I ever want to knit a jumper?), I’m planning to start on a scarf again, with quite a bit of embroidery. But given that it’s a scarf, that wouldn’t look too nice - which is why I’m thinking about doubleface knitting. The scarf will be mainly black and white - so that shouldn’t be a problem. But there are certain parts that include some more colours, unfortunateley. I’ve watched a youtube video doing doubleface knitting with 4 colours - given that I’ll be working with 8 or 9 colours, I doubt that I’d ever manage. And duplicate stitches are nice as well.
It’s still a couple of months, and I know that it’s an ambitious project - but it should work. I’ve tried duplicate stitches already on an old sample my mom didn’t need anymore, that’s pretty easy - and doubleface knitting doesn’t look too hard, though I’d certainly try it before actually attempting my real scarf.
Yet I’ve got a question already: Is it possible to actually do duplicate stitches on a doubleface part? I seriously doubt it is easily possible - unless you’re actually doing it immediately, and somehow leaving the loose bits of thread inside? I feel like I’m missing something there… It sounds like a disaster waiting to happen. I really hope that someone on here has already tried something of the sort, and could help me out!
Thanks for your help!
All the best,
