Hi Every one, I am trying to find a pattern for 2 needle socks, or even crochet socks. Iam not that coordinated to use 3 or 4 needles, I get so confused but I still try to do it I don't give up easily. I guess I'm all thumbs. Any Insturctions will be greatful. Thanks, KNITNEWSTITCH

I've crocheted these socks (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/crocheted-socks) a couple times for my gf, and they turned out pretty well. I have yet to be brave enough to knit socks though. Good luck. :)

Hi!
This can be done easily with working in magic loop. There is a video in the video section on how to do that.
When working in magic loop you can use patterns that are worked in the round. That means: no open needle ends that can lose the stitches.

You will just need to practice a moment, but before the heel of your first sock, you are a master!
