Hi Goby!
To knit in the front and back of the stitch, just do exactly as it says. Knit in the front of the stitch as usual, then BEFORE you slip the stitch to the other needle, knit in the back of it as well. You'll find a video about it on our website. Just click "videos" at the top of this page, and look under "increases".

Hi Christine! You should look for a "tube sock" pattern, if you want to make one without heels.

Here's some I found online: http://www.vintagepurls.net.nz/women...SpiralBedsocks
http://www.soxie.com/spirals.html

And there are lots of free sock patterns here:

Hi!
Hi,
I'm Mar51Day aka Marilyn Dayen, I live in Ephrata WA USA. I took up knitting when I quit smoking, and now I'm addicted to that instead. I'm trying to knit a pull-over crew-neck sweater for my husband. I'm having a difficult start. I don't know why, because I've knitted sweaters for me with no problem. Must be a mental block or something.
My question(s) is/are: The largest chest size for men that I see is 44". My husband is 6' tall, and has a size 47-1/2" chest.
1)I've figured out how to add inches for the chest measurement, but do I need to adjust the increase stitches also?
2) And when it comes to knitting the raglan sleeve and crew neck, are there adjustments necessary for that? If so, how do make those adjustments?
(Sorry this is so long, I don't know how to abbreviate yet )
I really like this website it's ingenious. Thank you in advance.

HI!
Hello there. What a great site. Everything's here including video instructionals which I NEED to develop my skills.

I picked up knitting again recently as I am about to go into surgery and a long recovery soon--tomorrow morning, actually.

One of my goals is to learn to make sweaters, (I'm not nearly ready to do this yet) and to hopefully find a way to make a pattern FROM a sweater I have--my favorite sweater is getting OLD.

See you around!

Hi Roberta! Check to see if there is a craft store like Michaels or Hobby Lobby or JoAnn's or AC Moore in your area. They have lots of knitting supplies. You can also find some essentials at Walmart. Good luck!

Your best bet will be to use plus-size patterns. Look for the link in my signature below to a website I made with links to plus-size patterns. Here is a basic pattern for making a plus-size sweater: Incredible, Custom-Fit Raglan

new to group
Hi all.
I have been crocheting for more years than I want to admit. I am
new to knitting. I have just started working on the art. It is good
to know that there is a place to ask questions when needed. I have
one son who will turn 21 this month. My husband died 4 years ago and we have 2 cats (they always come first) and a dog. We are
currently working two jobs to pay the bills and still be able to fix the
car and trailer. Our lives are a little short on time right now.
Glad to have found the group.
