Quick Links

To be quite honest, until recently I never really got into knitting socks.

There were just so many other things I wanted to knit, I don't wear socks that much and couldn't see the sense in knitting them when I can pick up a pair of socks from my local supermarket for less than the cost of the wool!

So there you have it. I can be wrong on occasion!

When I was setting up my physical store I started collecting quite a few 'how to' knitting DVDs as a resource for customers and students.

 Of course, if you are going to recommend DVD's to others, you really need to watch them yourself!

One of the DVD's was Knitting Korner: Sock I, How to Knit Socks on Two Circular Needles and I was hooked.

Within days, I had knitted several adult sized socks and then moved on to no seam baby socks.

So I now understand why so many of you ask me about knitting these socks!

Knitting with two circular needles feels really odd the first few times, but once you get used to working with them, it is the easiest method of knitting in the round and in my opinion, it produces the best result.

These days I use this method of knitting in the round for just about everything, sleeves on jumpers, fingers on gloves, toys, as I said - just about everything!

Knitting Socks: Finding Patterns

While I don't have any free sock patterns for you, in my frenzy to experience all things socks, I did find quite a few great patterns online.

Knitting Pattern Central has a large selection of sock patterns, just go to the homepage and enter 'socks' into the search box to a suitable pattern for your socks.

Knitting on the Net is also a great source of patterns as is Free Patterns. To find more just enter 'free sock knitting patterns' into your favourite search engine and you will be spoilt for choice!

How to Knit Socks on DPNs

Most sock patterns are written for making socks using double pointed needles. The end result is seamless as the socks are knitted as a tube with shaping at the heel and the toe.
