Knitalong Pattern: Worsted-Weight Socks for Beginners
A free basic worsted weight sock pattern for toe-up socks, knit one– or two-at-a-time, using Magic Loop. Features the Fleegle heel. This is the pattern I use to teach sock-knitting to first-time sock-knitters, and they always get great results.
Alternate Pattern: Basic Fingering-Weight Toe-Up Sock Pattern
Here is a free basic beginner pattern for fingering weight socks, toe-up socks, one– or two-at a time, using Magic Loop and the Fleegle heel. It’s the one I use in all my classes, and my students always get great results.
Recommended Circular Needles: Addi Turbo by Skacel
My favorite circular needles for knitting FAST. The blunt tips don’t hurt your fingertips, and the joins are smooth as silk.
Recommended Fabric Care: Soak by Soak Wash
My favorite no-rinse wool wash for blocking your knit garments. Comes in lovely scents and also unscented. Just squirt some in cold water and add your garment (or gauge swatch) and let soak for 15-20 minutes. Squeeze to remove water and lay flat to dry or block.
Recommended Fabric Care: Sock Blockers by Knitter's Pride
Sock blockers are the perfect way to make your finished socks look their best. Whether you are going to keep them for yourself or give the socks as a gift, the last step before you wear your knit socks is always to block them. The even and smooth shape persists even after machine washing and drying.
