Sweet Heart Hotpad:


Double-knitting is worked with two colors of yarn producing a double thickness, reversible afghan.
One color forms the background, the other color forms the design. Each square on the graph equals 1K and 1P stitch,
so you will need to cast on twice as many stitches as there are squares in a row on the graph. Read the chart
from right to left on the right side and from left to right on the wrong side. When working
the design, knit the design color and purl the background in the opposite color. Check both sides of
your work frequently to make sure you are using the correct colors.
