Video Knitting Course: Toe-Up, Two-at-a-Time Socks

Toe-up socks are the hippest and most addictive project in knitting right now, and it's easy to see why.

Knitters love making their socks from the toe-up because they can try on as they go, knit two-at-a-time, and there's no heel flap or picking up stitches.

The ideal project for any intermediate knitter to learn, improve, and enjoy.


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.

Mittens are fast project that you can often do with one skein of yarn. And you'll be surprised at how easy it is to knit them two-at-a-time.

Learn to knit a pair of mittens two-at-a-time on Magic Loop - no previous Magic Loop experience required. This guide takes you step-by-step through everything you need to know to succeed.
