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!
No more orphan socks! Knit both of your socks at one time and you have a pair completed when you bind off. This video demonstrates how to cast on for two toe up socks at once using Judy’s magic cast on. This method is suitable for magic loop knitting or two circs. There are no more excuses for single sock syndrome!
The garter stitch short row heel is both cushy and durable. It is simple to knit and is a great complement to many sock designs. The use of a counter will help keep even the novice knitter on track. Watch Part 1 to get started on this fun heel!
The second part of the short row heel seems to give knitters the most trouble. Picking up the wraps can be tricky until you recognize which strand to pick up and how it should be knit. Let me help you through this step and you can become a fan of this quick and professional looking heel. Watch both Part 1 and Part 2 and you will be cruising through your heels!
Using this cast on is the slickest way to begin a toe up sock. I like to follow this cast on with a wedge toe because it is simple to do and makes a comfortable home for your toes. Both the cast on and wedge toe are demonstrated in my newest video. Toe up socks are a great choice when your yarn yardage is a bit skimpy. Begin at the toe and knit up the leg until your skein is gone. If you have never made a toe up sock, hop on the bandwagon and see what you have been missing!
Pick up stitches for the gusset using the magic loop method. Many knitters get a little “turned around” after the turn heel. Stay tuned to the “Gusset” video and you will glide right on down your sock in record time!
