(( How to... )) double a pattern

For this tutorial I'm going to use #75080 as an example.

You can just knot the pattern as it is, but you can also play around with it a little. If you want to double the pattern there are several ways to do that:


Doubled, just two times the pattern next to each other:

Doubled,not mirrored but shifted:

For this version I choose color B as the color I wanted to see where two different colors were knotted together.

Doubled,shifted and with an extra string in the middle:

For the extra string I used the same color as for strings B.
And for this version I choose color E as the color I wanted to see where two different colors were knotted together.

You always knot the two patterns together where the two not-used-strings in the even rows are touching. In example 4 you make knots where the red circles are. If the colors of the two strings are the same, you can use a forward knot.
If the colors are different you have to use a forwardbackward knot or a backwardforwardknot. It depends on the color you like to see which knot you choose.
And if you want to be even more creative you can also use a FK or a BK to change the color . . . It depends on the pattern you are using if that is an option.

Ofcourse there are more ways to double a pattern, like upside-down, but these pictures show you the basic.

Be creative !

Here are some examples for doubled patterns, which have more than 30 strings to inspire you a bit more:
