    I have never heard of this. I will have to write my aunt about this. I understand about changing needle size and I have heard of using a different size for the needle you are knitting on to when you go from one size (like for a ribbing) but definitely not the term

    I always do it for changing to or from ribbing, but from what I understand this is meant as two at the same time. So you’d be holding say a size 6 in one hand and size 7 in the other. I’ve heard something similar for people who knit extremely tightly but not ongoing for the entire piece.

    Yes, in the late 70s and early 80s several patterns were produced for this type of knitting. I did it then, and I had a sweater that was knitted this way, either by myself or my mom. Made an interesting textured effect.

      Oh, interesting!! Was it generally one size different, like a 6 and a 7? Or several sizes different like a 6 and a 10? I guess I need to keep looking (not that I ever intended to stop lol) and maybe one day I’ll find a pattern that uses this technique!
