Put your colourful double knitting wool to good use this year and stay on top of the fashion trends this season.
Create Chunky Cable Knits and More with Double Knitting Wool
As the temperature drops and the Christmas season approaches, what better excuse to get wrapped up nice and warm in this season's latest designs. Shopping on the high street for winter wardrobe staples can cost a fortune. Invest in double knitting wool and save yourself a bundle.
The Cable Knit - Getting wrapped up to brave the cold is one of life's little pleasures and looking good is easy, even on a budget. Learning how to knit cables can make your woolly jumpers and sweaters stand out. A cable knit jumper is made up of vertically knitted panels bordered by purl stitches that are designed to show off the cable design. If you are new to knitting cables, start off slowly with a small knitted garment such as a pair of mittens or a woollen hat.
The Snood - This is the latest garment on the high street that is a cross between a scarf and a hood that when knitted can enhance your outfit instantly. These garments look stunning in every colour and are ideal for beginners. The design itself makes quite an impact and can be knitted using one block colour. Dig out your double knitting wool and create comfy accessories to keep you toasty this winter.
Create Seasonal Gifts with Double Knitting Wool
Warm winter garments make great gifts for the family and using double knitting wool is a cost effective way of giving fashionable gifts.

Texere Double Top Cotton Knitting Pattern - 034 Washcloths
This leaflet is for two colourful wash cloths or dischcloths knitted in Texere Double Knitting Cotton. You may feel that life is too short to be knitting dishcloths, but when you have gorgeous colours to choose from, you can whizz a couple up in an evening and they are brilliant for the environment then why not?! The pure cotton cloths can be used with facial washes, anti-bacterial sprays and then be machine washed (at 30**) so mean no more wasteful wet wipes and you can even co-ordinate them with your bathroom or kitchen. Make one, wrap up a posh soap and tie with a ribbon and you have a perfect gift! There are waffle and striped patterns for the small cloths and a simple stocking stitch pattern for the larger cloths, so great for beginners and really quick to make. Double Top is a double knitting weight yarn and you could use any DK yarn, just make sure it's absorbent and check your tension first. Click on image for quantities & size information.
