Double knitting Afghan S loom?
Hello double knitting & Knitting Board enthusiasts! Back in the summer of 2013 I tested double knitting on the new Knitting Board Super Afghan loom (11/16″ gauge and 198 pegs) and talked a little about it in my review. Many have asked how to set this up. Here it is written out for set up for double knitting Afghan S loom.

I suggest marking skipped pegs with a piece of tape in front, use a small stitch marker, OR paint the top tip of the peg (some people use nail polish as it comes off when needed). On the inside curves you WILL NOT skip pegs. With this method you will get double knitting for 77 pegs wide. The gap between is rather large for gauge so be sure to use multiple strands, a bulky or super bulky yarn. The stitches you use will also determine the size of your gauge as well as usual.
See notes below. Sk1 means skip 1 peg. K3 means you will work that number of pegs after setting up but still working from front board to back board. a set means you will repeat that pattern for listed amount of times:
On outside edge k2 sk1 for 6 sets
