Two-part fingering on adjacent strings. The easiest double stops are those with an open string (all intervals are possible, including very wide ones). If both strings are fingered the most common intervals range from unison to a tenth. Intervals from a third to an octave are relatively easy if playing remains within one position. The fingering of larger intervals such as fifths and sixths is easier than that of thirds and fourths.
