Does anyone remember the Carol Duvall Craft show from the late 1960's and early 1970's. She had a new knit stitch on one of them that when you knitted an afghan or baby blanket that when finished was like a double blanket, you could pull it apart and it was like terminal. I used to have the pattern but have misplaced it. If I could find it there are quite a few item I would like to use it for. If anyone can help I would appreciate it.

I know the blanket you're speaking of, a friend of ours crocheted one for our son when he was born in 1980. When you pulled the thread on the one she made it became about twice as big, kind of like a "grow with you" blanket!

I watched her in the 90's I loved her... I don't know if I watched her when she made a come back or not.. I don't remember her from the 60's or 70's.. and I know that her shows in the late 90's through early 2000's were first run... however I do know the stitch you are talking about.. its the 'double stitch' you will need to look up exactly how to do it.. but essentially you k1 slip 1 k1 slip 1... and there is a little more to it but when you get done its double thick.

What do you mean by terminal?
This sounds like double knitting. It can be done by slipping every other stitch as one knitter mentioned, or it can be done by knitting and purling every other stitch using two yarns. It then becomes reversible with the same pattern in the opposite color on each side. There are several variations. Google double knitting.
Attached is a picture of a hat in progress. The white is the outside and the black is the inside. Double knitting can be done in the round or flat.
Of course the word "terminal" may indicate something altogether different.
Circular double knitting
Circular double knitting...

Oh wow I had forgotten ahout the show .. I loved her show wiht all the craftiness that was on the show. Loved it when it was on HGTV. I think she retired due to something like MS or something. She was awesome.
