i would very much like to learn how to knit socks, but the patterns i've looked at are all very...intimdating. so if anyone could recommend a relatively simple sock pattern that would be greatly appreciated
This is the best one I know of! It's got photos every step of the way. I learned on the double pointed needles (DPN) pattern. You could also do the toe up on two circular needles. I don't recommend the two sock pattern till you have learned how to do basic socks. http://www.cometosilver.com/socks/
When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.
On Knittinghelp.com..... On one of the tabs find PATTERNS... I actually made the North Country child's sock which is among other patterns. I also purchased the video which is wonderful. Amy knits... and you can follow her every step as you knit.. and the good thing... just rewind and replay. Love it! Good Luck... Cair
