Mixed sts / Couples knitting

This is a new / continued theme I’m still exploring: I see the knitting as a double knit fabric but sometime do double strand garter st or st.st.

If you want to try it yourself:

a double knit unit = 1 knit facing st + 1 purl facing st.

Change a unit like that to 1 double strand st or 2 st.sts (k on one side p on the next).

There is a lot that comes with it and I’m still learning (it’s fascinating), and I hope to write more about it. For now here are some photos:

Above is one of my current projects, I’m actually half way through the other side by now. Mixing short rows with the above way of stitching.

 

 

 

 

 

 

and a scarf using that technique.

 

 

 

 

 

And this is how it started:

1. mixing double knit and stockinet

2. Mixing dk & double strand:
