Viking Knit Tutorial : Intermediate Level, Double and TripleKnits
Now that you've been practicing your single knit, you're probably wondering if there's any other variation of thisfabulous technique to try. Indeed there is, double and triple knit. There's nothing really difficult about makingdouble/triple knits vs. single knit, but it's slightly harder to see where to put your knitting wire, so most people startout on single knit.This photo shows some samples of double viking knit. The copper chain was made with 26g wire. The middlesilver chain was knit with 28g fine silver wire. The bottom chain was knit with 30g fine silver wire. Finer wires allowyou to draw to a tinier diameter without crushing the weave.If you have not started this blog series by reading thesingle knit tutorial,please visit it first for instructions aboutstarting the knit on your tool. This post assumes that you already know how to do single viking knit and thereforewill not cover those basic principles.
How to Make Double Knit:
 The first thing you will need to do is knit at least two rows of single knitchain.Double knit chain is essentially made the exact same way as singleknit, except for one key point. You want to place your wire up
two rungs 
(instead of only one) and then slide it behind the
corresponding loop to the left. Triple knit is therefore made by putting the wire up
three rungs 
and behind thecorresponding loop to the left.Pull the wire down and you should see a loop like this. Itwill look larger and longer than the single knit version.Work your knit around until you run out of wire. Youchain will start to look like this. If you find itincreasingly difficult to get your wire behind the loops,you can use a pair off flatnose pliers to tighten up theloops slightly and to even the knit as the chaingrows.Simply place the jaws on either side of the knit column and gentlysqueeze the knit until it straightens up the column and tightens the knit.
 It should become much easier to get the wire behind your loopsnow.Your double knit weave should look something like this when you aredone with your first section of wire. Again, don't be upset if yours doesnot look at neat as mine.....I've been doing this for quite awhile now.Your technique will improve over time.When you need to begin a new section of wire, use the same processthat you would for single knit. This is also true for other tools than theLazee Daizee. Just follow the single knit instructions, but bring that newwire up
two rungs 
instead of one. Likewise, up three rungs for tripleknit.
