Double Knitting Fun

This is the first time I've ever done this and it IS fun. But it's also slow going. I feel like the winter might be over by the time I get this finished. You alternate knitting and slipping the different colors on every row so essentially, you're only really knitting one color on each row. The result is a double layer of knitting. You can find the pattern here:the blue blog patterns: double knit cap She describes it as being "one warm a** ski hat", and, yes, it certainly will be. I'd love to make one of these for my son but to tell you the truth he loses everything he owns and I would want to scream if I went to the trouble and he lost it. (He lost two hats I knit for him last winter) Hopefully Clark will hang on to this.
