What are the double knit yarns Horncastle hobbyists use?
‘Double knit yarns’ is a broad category for different yarns. It refers to woollen threads, spun and dyed into a yarn that have a medium weight. It is not as lightweight as some of the very fine yarns that are available for delicate work, but it is lighter than chunky yarns or heavier Aran weight yarn. Many people who knit or crochet consider it as a standard weight of yarn.
The name itself may be a reference to a traditional style of knitting, called double knitting. This is where a two-sided piece of material is knitted simultaneously on the same knitting needles. When the pattern is finished, the second side has the same pattern or image as the first side, but with the colours reversed. It is also possible that the name ‘double knit yarns’ refers to the fact that it is light enough to knit with two yarns at the same time. Either way, when it comes to double knit yarns, Horncastle hobbyists consider this a great choice for most projects.
What types of projects can be done with double knit yarns?
Because of the medium weight, double knit yarns are suitable for all types of projects that Horncastle hobbyists might have in mind. It is a versatile yarn. It can be knitted or crocheted. It is often knitted with 3.5-4mm knitting needles, but it can be adapted to other styles of work.
