Hey all! :muah:

Since I'm back, I might as well ask a question I have had circling my brain for the past few days.

I just recently learned to knit socks toe up using one of Silver's tutes. (Thanks so much!) I was wondering if any of you know any easy patterns for beginners that are toe up. I looked in Socks Soar on Two Circular Needles by Cat Bordhi, but I just really want a simple stitch pattern that doesn't put me to sleep. :roflhard: Thanks so much!! :heart:

There are so many free patterns, you almost don't have to buy a book. (that said by the woman who owns 80% of every sock book ever published!)

Have you joined www.ravelry.com yet? If so, you can search for toe up socks and gets hundreds of patterns.

Other places to search (you'll have to do some sorting/searching to find toe up):
www.knittingpatterncentral.com
www.knitty.com (look in the archives)

Yeah, if you're on Ravelry type in "basic toe up" and you get a lot of patterns. Here's a few.
