Pittsburgh Lou
 
Hello Everyone,
My name is Mary Lou and I'm from Pittsburgh, PA, home of the mighty Steelers. I have two children in their thirties who both decided to get married this year, five months apart!
My Mother made me the tradional double wedding ring quilt many years ago and I would like to knit one. Unfortunately, I have been unable to find a pattern for a knitted one. I have seen them in crochet, but I would prefer to knit one.
I would appreciate any help. Thank You.

Hi Lu,
The knitted double wedding ring was first published in Interweave Knits the 2002 summer edition credited to Sharon O'Brien, It is still available from the interweave site as a down load for $6.00. Hope this helps. It sounds like a lot of work but is beautiful. Good luck and happy knitting. :)Kaju

If you have not found this yet, here is the link to the quilt pattern on Interweave Knits.. And the link to the eBay auction for the CD of all 4 issues in 2002.

http://www.interweavestore.com/Knitting/Patterns/Double-Wedding-Ring-Quilt.html

The CD link:

There are only 2 more of the CDs available. They cost $19.99 for the whole year of magazines. I ordered one of these and one from 2009. The seller sent brand new, shrink wrapped product. I was quite pleased.
