Hello anyone who can knit. My question is do you have any good guides to knitting a sock? I’ve tried following a pattern with 5 double pointed needles (working from top to toe)), and I’ve tried a video tutorial using circular needles (working from toe).. but I haven’t managed it yet!

  • My mum used to be able to knit just about anything including socks from memory. Unfortunately I could never get the hang of it. I’d try googling sock instructions.

  • I can knit a scarf but that is about it!

  • Ive knitted socks on just 2 knitting needles. Have a look on google, that’s where I found my pattern

  • I haven’t but my sister reckons she has the easiest pattern ever …. however, it’s five pages and I don’t know how to upload here ….. does anyone know if we can, in fact, upload a document here??

  • I would love to be able to knit.

  • Watching this thread as I have been looking for a pattern

  • I have been looking for easy things myself to teach me how to knit or crochet, I came upon these two the other day as my neighbour was knitting socks. They appear to be straight forward and informative and with lots of tips. Hope this helps :)

  • I’ve knitted a lot of socks but am Dutch and found it very hard to explain/translate in English what to do. It’s easier then you think. For many the most tricky part might be knitting the heel, which is just a matter of picking up stitches and decrease them again whilst you knit around.

  • I have knitted a lot of garments but haven’t tries socks yet.
    Ravelry is a large knit & crochet community, you can find them online, they also have a forum for knitters to exchange know-how, as well as free socks patterns on offer.
    Give it a go and you may get a lot of help there.

  • My mother used to use three needles to knit socks. She did it all from memory. Unfortunately I’m no good at knitting. Good luck with your project.

  • I’ve just knitted some little socks for my 9 week old grandson. I didn’t use multiple needles, just 2 normal needles. I will have to dig the pattern out for you and get back to you

  • I’ve got some old knitting books that have patterns my grandmother used but I can’t knit myself unfortunately so have no idea how to read them hehe
