This is the basic idea of that technique:

Now if you have a mitten pattern, follow what it says about skipping, for your double knit mittens. I couldn't find a pattern for them except this one:

But, it might be exactly what you need. I'm sort of flying low through here before dinner so I hope someone can find you a better something, susi.... Happy Knitting.

I know it sounds obvious, but have you tried Googling? Try: knitting pattern, mittens, double knit. That ought to get you in the ballpark. Good luck!

Hi Susi -- you might try this free pattern:
http://fog.org/~douglask/dmitten.html -- I haven't made these, so I can't tell you how it turns out, but it looks fairly straight forward. These would let you try the technique without having to purchase a pattern. There are many patterns for sale -- try searching Ravelry for "reversible" mitten. Karen

Thanks for posting that pattern Karen! Just exactly what I've wanted also! It is soooo cold here and my mittens just aren't warm enough.
