View Full Version : Pattern for Socks

09-12-2007, 02:56 PM
I'm looking for a sock pattern that would be appropriate for someone new to doing this. I've been knitting for 2 years now and feel it's time to move on to something besides cloths and scarfs. Can anyone recommend a pattern that wouldn't be too "difficult" for a beginner.

Thanks much

Well my first sock was done using silver's sock tutoria (http://www.cometosilver.com/socks/SockClass_Start.htm)l... it's really good. Otherwise you could look here (http://knitty.com/archiveFEET.html) the letters on the right is for how difficult the pattern is, so I would recommend you to stay away from extra spicy. Not because I don't think you could do it. But because it perhaps wont be as smooth and as easy and so perhaps might leave you a bit more reluctant about socks in the future, which would be sad because, i have found with my very limited experience, they are really fun.

I finished my fist sock using Silver's Tutorial mere moments ago! She makes it easy.

It only took me 2 months to do one sock, but that's because my kids managed to pull all my needles out just as I was getting ready to shape the toes. I only today got up the nerve to put all the stitches back. It was an easy sock, with the exception of my kids' "help." I think the second sock will be a breeze, provided I keep it out of reach!

I just finished the North Country Cotton Baby sock pattern. It was good because of the size was finished quickly, and Amy's sock-heel videos are using that pattern- which is why I chose it. So if you have a baby to knit for, or even if you want to quickly learn socks and have a cute looking little pair, I'd recommend it.


It also gives adaptations for toddler socks.
