Video Knitting Course: Mastering Magic Loop Socks

Knitting socks is easy and fun when you use Magic Loop. You can even knit them two-at-a-time! You’ll be amazed at how easy it is.

Learn Magic Loop, Toe-Up Two-at-a-Time Socks, and Top-Down Two-at-a-Time socks in this bundle class that includes 8 different sock patterns for all yarn weights.


Video Knitting Course: Top-Down Socks, Two-at-a-Time

Knitting two-at-a-time socks is the coolest trend in knitting right now. Never suffer from second-sock syndrome again.

Once you learn the technique of knitting socks on Magic Loop, you'll want to make everything in the round two-at-a-time, whether it's sweater sleeves, socks, or mittens.

Since my live "How to Knit Socks on Magic Loop, One or Two-at-a-Time" class in Salt Lake City started getting oversold, I created a video knitting course that guides you through all the steps of learning this new technique, just as if you were in a private lesson with me.

Recommended Fabric Care: Soak by Soak Wash

Soak Wool Wash Celebration Scent square sm

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

Aqua Sock Blockers Medium Knitters Pride square

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.

Testimonial: Easy Breezy Conversational Style

I bought this Top-Down Socks book because I love the easy-'breezy conversational style in your videos, Liat, and it didn't disappoint me. It's just like sitting down with a good friend to teach me, except I can pause and rewind you! I love this book!

Testimonial: A Better Method

In regards to: Magic Loop, Top-Down Socks

I have never done Magic Loop prior to finding this. I attempted 1 pair of socks on 3 DPNs and was not happy with either the process or the result. (I hated dealing with all those needles!) I purchased this Top-Down Socks class in the hopes of finding a better method and I wasn't disappointed.

Your videos and instructions were so clear and easy to follow that I have now completed my first pair on ML and I'm hooked! (No pun intended). Haven't tried 2 at a time yet, but that's next up for me. I can see that now I'm going to have to purchase your knitting superstar book :-)

Testimonial: Two at a Time at Last

Liat!!! Oh my Oh my "..I love your e-book" can you tell ~ I am so excited!!!! I have made two pair of socks in my ten years of knitting on magic loops, one at a time mind you, and wanted to learn to do two at a time. Your instructions are amazing.
