I loved the double knitted vest that looked quilted on this show.  Where is the pattern?  I hope you can let me know!  It is so dissappointing to see all these neat knitted items and not be able to get the patterns on your site.

I too would love the pattern for the double-knitted vest.  Wouldn't it look great with the Norwegian Snowflake pattern?  Please, please post the pattern somewhere.

I too, am still looking for that pattern for the vest. I remember way back in the 80s there was a pattern printed in black and white for a vest like a knitted down vest. (When down vests were popular.) I wish I still had it. I would really appreciate finding either pattern.

I would just like the instructions for how to double side knit.  I saw it on the show and think I can figure it out, but would like to have some written instructions.
