Greetings....
I have recently made a pair of socks with the sassy stripes yarn... and now i am looking to make a pair with the fingering weight Tofutsie's yarn....... I do NOT have size 2 dpns at the moment.... but I do have 0, or 1 dpns... can someone point me in the direction of a free pattern... simple sock pattern? thanks.

I would prolly do a swatch first with your size 1dpns and then go from there :thumbsup:

I've been dying to do them myself and haven't been able to decide on a yarn that I have ! I tried them on size 2's and the ribbing was going to be too big for my leg, so I'm going to use the size 1's........which is what they suggest to begin with !

Yeh...........DO IT ! :poke:

I love Tofutsies yarn! Right now I'm knitting a pair of socks for my DH on size 2 dbpn. I am using a basic sock pattern and cast on #1=20; #2=32; #3=20. The heel flap is: #1=18; #2=36; #3=18. I tried knitting with size 0 needles but it was too hard for me. My husband has a wide foot so I hope that these will work for him. If not, I'll chalk it up as an important lesson learned. Hope this helps.
