knitting socks on the magic loop
I was wondering if anyone out their in the knitting world know how to do socks on the MAGIC LOOP finger weight yarn I have started and for some reason they look different then my friends who is doing it with dpn. so if anyone out their has a pattern, that would like to share that would be great.


Everyone says it is just like dpn ( but again mine looks different) pattern so of that is the case please share the pattern as well

again it is finger weight yarn with a size 2 needle

thank you Jenifer Peters

I am all into doing socks using magic loop now. I'm finding it way easier than dpns.

How exactly do yours look different???

I have not seen any patterns actually written for magic loop. I just take whatever sock pattern and just do it on magic loop rather than dpns. When I get to the decrease sections, I use stitch markers to mark which stitches would be on what needles if I were using dpns, and just go along same as always. A few patterns that I have used are these.....

If I can be of any more help, or if you have more specific questions, let us know!

By the way, I'm envious of your size 6 feet!!! I wear a 9/10.

I think this might help. It's doing two at once. But you can just do one at a time too.

Jenifer, I have done the magic loop and I think I prefer it. I've done both one at a time and two at a time, and I think I prefer the one at a time.

Here are a couple of pics of last socks I did - toe up and sherman heel on a circ.

What size needles are you using? I'll look up the pattern I used later - on our way out. But I used a 48 cast on with size 4 or maybe 6 needles once and they were fine, but kind of a bit loose. Then I made them with size 2 needles - same yarn and they were nice snuggy perfect socks. The one in the pic is on a size 2 - again same yarn, but gotta find the pattern. It was a short row heel and I think I liked doing the gusset ones better.

Good luck and take a pic! These were my first socks I'll attach, and they fit, but were a little looser. And as always with mine, there's mistakes! You'll learn a lot doing your first pair.

Found the pattern for the short row ones: http://www.knitlist.com/2002/ToeUpSock.htm but again, I liked the regular pattern with gussets better.
