View Full Version : magic loop sock pattern?

02-16-2006, 08:18 AM
Are there any free magic loop sock patterns out there?
I see the instructions for 2 socks at once, I'd rather learn with one! *laugh*
I have done them on dpns and really am not fond of that method and don't have 2 circs small enough/same size to try the 2 circ method yet.
And I'd really prefer top down.
I just can't seem to visualize how you change "on needle 3* type instructions for magic loop,so really need a pattern for the first time.
Any links out there?

Yeah I have that one, it's two socks at once and reading through it I was totally lost quite quickly lol
I was hoping for one that is top down, one sock at a time so I could get used to it first.
Thanks tons, though

I had looked at that site once and didn't really understand the concept. I haven't been able to find the magic loop book in my area and haven't gotten around to ordering it. Can I assume that knitting one sock that way would be just like the photo without the second sock? Or does that seem toooooo simple? :D samm who is new here.

Here is a link to a top-down magic loop sock tutorial. Though it isn't a pattern, it shows how to translate any double-pointed needle pattern to a magic loop pattern. It's for two socks at once, though... :thinking:

I found a clear explanation and photos at www.az.com/~andrade/knit/mloop.html (not sure if that's how to find it.) I'll look again. I just typed in magic loop and searched and found lots of information. samm
