Two At A Time – Cuff Down Socks

Knitting cuff down socks can be twice as fun when you knit them two at at time. This video demonstrates how to cast on and knit two top down socks at once using the magi loop method. When you finish the toes you have a complete pair!

    Thanks for the video, I have learned so much doing the KAL’s! I have been using magic loop for one sock and just used 2 needles separately. Now I can cast on twice as many socks. What fun!

    I am a big fan of magic loop method and toe-up socks… I have also done cuff down socks and mittens and leg warmers two at a time, and hats. What an innovation.

    Watch my video “Two at a Time – Short Row Heels” to work this fun technique.

    Glad to see this done ‘real time’ rather than picures in the book. I may get my courage up to try this again.
    (Did anyone ever look at the closed captioning that goes with this? Hilarious! Not accurate but really funny)

    Thank you for doing a video on this. A couple of years ago, I bought the TAAT sock book and it was so confusing. Your video makes it so clear. Now I think I have the courage to try TAAT!

    I’m happy to help you in your sock addiction!

    Thank you so much for this video. I’m not making socks, but actually raglan sleeves for my daughter’s sweater. This works perfectly and I can get both sleeves done at the same time.

    These techniques are incredible! I’ve been knitting for more than 50 years, and only recently discovered the magic loop method and also using 2 circs instead of double pointed needles. Now I see how to make 2 socks simultaneously. My mind is boggled. I do have a suggestion, though. It would be much easier to see the details in the demo if the yarn were of a lighter color. Thanks so much for these instructional videos.

    Can I still use 2 circulars to do this kal? Thanks!

    Absolutely. You will follow the same instructions as for magic loop. Happy to have you knitting with us!

    Thanks so much for this video!! I’ve been wanting to learn how to knit 2aat socks for a while. I do have one question though– can you use this method for ANY sock patterns??
