What Is The Difference Between Your Toe-Up Sock Patterns?

KnitFreedom specializes in free basic toe-up sock patterns for Magic Loop.

So which of our basic sock patterns should you choose?

The Pattern You Choose Depends On Your Yarn, Needles, and Preferences

Basic Fingering-Weight Toe-Up Socks
At KnitFreedom, you have a choice between basic, beginner socks or more challenging heel-flap socks.

You can also use a thick yarn (worsted weight) or a thinner, sock-weight yarn (fingering-weight).

If your yarn doesn’t fit into the above categories OR you want to make a different size than what is available in the patterns, we have a generic pattern that will work for any yarn and any size foot.

Basic, Beginner Socks

If this is your first time knitting socks, I recommend the beginner socks detailed below. The are designed based on Fleegle’s basic sock pattern, and they have an easy-to-learn, no-holes heel called the Fleegle heel.

Worsted-Weight Beginner Socks

Blue ShiBui worsted-weight toe-up socksWorsted-weight yarn is recommended for a first sock. The socks are a quick knit and you can use them for lounging around the house.

If you want to stick as closely as possible to the videos in our Toe-Up Socks class, use our worsted-weight sock pattern. Choose a worsted or heavy-worsted yarn, and choose a needle size that will get you a gauge of 4.5 stitches per inch (probably a US size 7 or 8 needle).

How to check your gauge for worsted-weight yarn

Here’s a video showing how to check your gauge in the round.

If your gauge is wrong

If you get more than 4.5 stitches per inch, try again with a needle one size bigger.
If you get fewer than 4.5 stitches per inch (not as likely), try again with a smaller needle.

Fingering-Weight Socks

If you’d like to knit fingering-weight socks, print out the Beginner Fingering-Weight Sock Pattern here. You’ll need to acheive a gauge of 7 stitches per inch and you’ll use needles US size 0-2, depending on how tight or loose you knit.

Generic Beginner Socks for Any Yarn Weight and Size

Above and Right: Fingering-Weight Baby Socks made using the Generic Toe-Up Sock pattern
Our basic beginner sock pattern is available as a generic “formula” pattern that you can use to knit socks in any weight (gauge) of yarn AND for any size foot.

All you need handy is the foot for which you are knitting, since you will be trying on as you go.

Toe-Up Heel-Flap Socks

If you want to knit toe-up socks with a heel flap, we have a pattern for that, too. This sock is a BIT more complex than the beginner socks above, so I would not recommend it for a first sock.

These socks have a “faux” or “built-in” heel flap. The advantages of this sock are:

You can knit a contrasting-color heel and toe, which you can’t do with our basic Fleegle Heel sock patterns.

You can also do textured heel stitches like the eye-of-the-partridge or slip-stitch heel pattern on the heel flap.

Last, you can adjust this pattern easily for high insteps to make the heel fit your foot just right. To learn more about the faux heel flap heel and see a video on how to do it, check out our blog post: "Heel Flaps Are BACK."

You can access the entire KnitFreedom site from your mobile device.

The only thing that won’t work on mobile is watching the streaming video PDFs. You can load the PDFs onto your device, but the videos won’t play.

However, you can download our videos to your computer and transfer them to your mobile device. That way, you’ll have the PDF and the videos on your device.

Updated March 23, 2019

Unfortunately, Adobe has stopped distributing and updating its Flash Player, which is the technology that made our streaming PDFs run, so we can no longer offer that type of document. The good news is, this shouldn’t affect how you interact with our material too much. You will still definitely have access to your classes – forever.

​The online experience isn’t affected at all, and you can view your classes as usual by going to your My Classes page (click “My Classes” in the KnitFreedom menu bar).

If you prefer to view your classes offline, this is still absolutely possible, with one small adaptation. You will need to download the PDF and the video files to your computer or other device separately. You can find all the videos for your class at your Video Downloads page. (For further help with how to download your videos, please see this FAQ.)

Once all of the information is downloaded to your computer or other device, you will be able to enjoy your full class without an internet connection. Simply follow along with the class in your downloaded PDF as usual. When you come to a video, instead of seeing it stream in the PDF, what you will see is a placeholder with the name of the video you should watch. You can then easily select that video from among the ones you downloaded and watch it. Then you return to the PDF to continue with the class.

​This will mean you have full offline access to your classes, even if the videos are now in their own file and you play them separately from the PDFs.

Updated August 20, 2020

Become a Knitting Superstar was our flagship, all-you-ever-needed-to-know-to-become-a-Knitting-Superstar course when we launched back in 2010. It contains 9 modules including Reading a Knitting Pattern, Video Knitting Dictionary, Magic Loop, Toe-Up Socks, Top-Down Socks, plus bonus classes and top-10 lists like Knit Faster, Fix the Top 10 Knitting Mistakes, and Continental Knitting.

Since then, we’ve added so many new classes to KnitFreedom that we created Premium membership. This is a great choice for students who know they want access to everything we have to offer and want to get it at a huge discount.

KnitFreedom Premium is our all-access membership to KnitFreedom knitting videos and classes, including Become a Knitting Superstar, plus new classes like our famous 5-star Cast-On and Bind-Off libraries, as well as lauded color-knitting courses such as Brioche Knitting, Fair-Isle Knitting, Double-Knitting, and Mosaic Knitting. See all the classes Premium contains here.

If you would like to sample the Premium membership for less than the price of a single class, you can choose to pay $12.99/month for Premium Monthly and get access to all classes while your subscription is active (does not include video downloads).

Premium Lifetime is the perfect choice if you want to download all our videos to your computer or mobile device for offline access, plus get all classes at a huge discount (over 65% off the price of buying the classes individually).

No Discounts

Since Premium Lifetime is already heavily discounted, we do not offer further discounts for those students who have previously bought classes, including Knitting Superstar. However, we do offer a 60-day no-questions-asked money-back guarantee, so if you feel that you did not get what you were hoping for out of your $197 investment, we will happily refund your purchase. To date not a single student has decided Premium Lifetime was not worth it.

Don’t Wait!

Just to let you know, Premium Lifetime and Premium Monthly are options that won’t be around forever. These are promotional products we chose to make available during the reopening of our new, upgraded website. Take advantage and sign up today, because soon they will be gone!

Please try any of the following steps (whichever is easiest for you) as they may help to bypass the problem:

  • Clear your browser cache (almost always fixes the issue)
  • Use a different browser (for example, use Safari on your Mac if right now you’re using Chrome)
  • Use a different device, maybe someone else’s phone or computer just to test
  • Log in on the My Classes page instead of on the login page

2. (Chrome users): If you see the error message, “Cookies are blocked or are not supported by your browser. You must enable cookies to use WordPress:”
