Double Knitting: A Serious Challenge

Even relatively accomplished knitters (like I fancy myself) are often skittish about the topic of double knitting. And with good reason: it's easy to screw up, impossible to fix, it's inefficient, and the results you get are often just not worth the trouble. The ROI (Return On Investment) just isn't there, for the most part.
But every once in a while, there's a project that you just have to use double knitting for. And of course many knitters want to try out a new technique just for the challenge of trying a new technique!
