Double beanies – pattern for Magic Loop

I finally mailed off the package of beanies.  Hopefully the crochet version will get an OK and I’l share it.  But in the meantime, I had a couple of emails from people asking about the Magic Loop version of two-at-a-time.  As I had annotated the original pattern for myself, I figured I might as well write it up.

I like making one girly one and one boyish one when I do two at a time.  And while I did manage three at a time, the problem is with keeping the yarn straight.  The middle ball needs care and attention, much more than just two do.

I wanted to try adding an active link to my PDF – I had to use a different program than I usually do so it was learning something new.  It worked, but when I view it the links don’t look active, until you hover over them.  THEN you can see the cursor that indicates a clickable link and clicking will open the page in your browser.  I wanted to add links to videos or instructions that I found useful. I have ones for the Limitless Cast On for 2-at-a-time ANYTHING, a general 2-at-a-time sock video, invisible joining to knit in the round (and I also find this trick helps me not let the stitches twist when joining) and as the beanies need to stretch and not be too tight, a couple of stretchy cast on videos.

Here is a PDF.  Any feedback would be very welcome!
