8 " Circular Needles
Hi: I am looking for a sock pattern that would use a 8" circular needle size 2. I bought the needle on vacation thinking I had a pattern at home. And of course now I realize I don't. Hoping you can help.

Thanks Cathy

I would imagine you can knit any sock on 8" circs, it doesn't matter which method or needles you use to knit in the round.

new to circular
I am new to circular needles. I guess I never thought of using any pattern. Just follow one along? I will give it a shot.

Thanks

The pattern should be for a sock with a circumference of 8 inches or more. In this way you don't stretch the stitches.

Sure, any pattern will work. I've never seen a pattern written for tiny circs...most are written for DPNs, 2 circular needles, or Magic Loop knitting, but if you understand sock construction you should haven't any trouble.
