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:

d pegs on right (total so 3 plus starter= see photo).

On outside edge k2 sk1 for 6 sets

Then k3 sk1
Then k2 sk1 4 sets
Then k3 sk 1
Then k2 sk 1 5 sets
Stop marking and go to opposite end. Mirror side 1 of S; after marking continue to wrap all pegs unless marked to skip. When wrapping you wrap the front peg and the one on the opposite board. No unmarked pegs should go empty. I suggest using a Bulky or Super Bulky weight only. For the Bulky it needs to be on the heavier side or you may need to double up on strands.
Below is a photo marking all the pegs with a black permanent marker.

I'm new to the KB S loom. I am making an afghan with 4 colors Bernat Softee Chunky I started with Color A True Grey B-Natural C-Greay Heather and D- Clay Argile. I am using the KB pattern Striped Afghan. It tells me on the last color change to follow 6 rows. My question is since I started with A should that be my last color change or should it be D

Can I covert a 38" Knitting loom double knit pattern onto the afghan loom? You mentioned bulky is best, but could it be done with worsted?
