Does anyone have any sock patterns that are specifically for knitting on circular needles rather than DPN? I dont own any DPN's and I want to try some socks...

As well, the smallest circular size I have is a 5. Is this even going to be ok for making socks??

TIA!!

Hi ladyindica2000,

Great topic!

All I know is that these websites have "how-to" instructions for knitting socks on circulars:

knitting 2 socks on 2 circulars (from socknitters.com):
http://www.socknitters.com/2circs/index.htm

knitting a sock magic loop style (from knitaddicted.com):

I hope someone else will come along and post if they have some special patterns though! :D

There is also a book which people rave about called "Socks Soar on Two Circular Needles: a Manual of Elegant Knitting Techniques and Patterns" by Cat Bordi which apparently shows how you can convert dpn sock patterns to Cat's knitting on 2 circs technique, and also has patterns. (If anyone out there has read this book, is it as good as all the reviews on Amazon.com?)
