If you ever wanted to try sock knitting but were intimidated by the process, you might want to check out this free ebook/doc from Interweave:
I looked it over and it seems to be very well explained.
I already knit socks and love it! It can be a bit daunting the first time around but what fun when you learn to turn the heel and after that, it’s piece of cake!
And there’s nothing nicer to wear on your footsies than handmade socks. A great gift idea too, so special.
Hope this is helpful
PS: If you’re a crafter, do share what you’re making right now, I’d love to hear about it! 🙂
PSS: The socks in the photo are a pair that I made, not from this tutorial.
A bit more than you’d probably want to tackle for a “first sock project”. 😉
PSSS: If you already are an experienced sock knitter, click through to check out this gorgeous sock pattern from Willow Yarns.
Wow, I don’t know if I’m up for that much of a challenge, but I sure like how these look!
I’m still knitting up a storm! 😉
Finished these Guilty Pleasures Socks a couple of weeks ago. They were fun to knit and not too difficult either.
I made them in Patons Stretch Socks yarn in Mineral shade and they took approximately 1.5 skeins to make (this was not the yarn called for in the pattern, that used just one skein in keeping with the theme of this book). They were one size pattern, fit great.
These socks are featured in the book: 101 Designer One Skein Wonders.
Actually a lot nicer in reality than the photos are!
Now that I’ve “aced” the art of sock-knitting, I’m working on my first pair of knit gloves now. Kind of challenge but fun. I’ll share some photos when those are completed too.
Happy Crafting !
