Knit First Round and Start Increasing for Toe
Start Knitting Your Toes
How did you do at Judy's Magic Cast-On for two-at-a-time socks? Were you successful?
Knitalong student Beverly had no issue with the cast-on, but noticed that each time she tried to knit the first round, she was losing cast-on stitches.
For her, and you, I made the following video: How To Stop Losing Cast-on Stitches On The First Round Of Your Toe-up Socks. Check it out!
Start Creating the Toes of Your Socks
Once you have knitted one plain round, it's time to begin increasing for your toes. In your Toe-Up Socks class you'll find two videos explaining and demonstrating the increases for toe-up socks: "How the Toe Increases Work" and "Increasing on Your Socks."
Watch both videos and work the toe section of your socks according to your pattern. If you have pointy needles they will be helpful to you while doing these slightly tricky increases.
If you are having difficulty doing the “Make One” increases, you can substitute a "Knit Front-and-Back (KFB) for the "Make One" according to this video.
In addition, to avoid any difficulties during your toe, make sure to watch the helpful videos "Keeping Track of Your Increases" and "How to Avoid Tangling Yarn on Two-at-a-Time Socks." You can find these in your Toe-Up Socks class as well as using the links above.
