I’ve been working in Katharina Buss’ Big Book of Knitting for some time now and came across her section on two color double shaker knitting. I am fairly convinced that something more than a few typos are at work in the section. I believe it may have something to do with the fact that she mistakenly listed the WS as the RS and then reversed many of the stitches. Following it to the letter, all I can come up with is a mess. Hers is the version of double shaker kitting that uses the yarn over technique as opposed to knitting into the stitch below, which is not as neat a way of doing the stitch as the yarn over.
If anyone has the book and could look it over and confirm my suspicions, I’d appreciate it, or perhaps someone could just break it down in a different way for me. It’s winter and my kids are FREEZING! Any help would be appreciated.
