Just wondering if anyone has a simple sock pattern that would be easy enough for someone using circulars for the first time. Ive done a lot of scarves and some simple stitches, but Im really wanting to try circular needles, everyone says they are the best! Im a little anxious about using them, but with a simple sock pattern maybe it wouldn't be so intimidating.
I definitely agree that Silver's sock tutorial is awesome. It was the first sock pattern I ever used. At first, I really thought that I wanted to use 2 circs instead of DPNs but some other knitters told me they think it can actually be more difficult than the DPNs.
So, I bought wooden DPNs (which I highly recommend) and tried it. Knitting on DPNs are realy not that scary. If you have knit on a circ before you should have no problem.
Thanks so much for your advice! I decided to try the DPN. Ive started the sock tutorial, its frustrating but Im starting to get it, although I have not moved past the cuff yet!! I guess its just a matter of diving into it and keep at it till you finally get it!! I think once I do get it, everyone I know will be getting socks.
Congratulations!!! Did you use circular needles or DPNs?? I have to give you a lot of credit, I got frustrated and had to put them away for a while. I was using DPNs, but thinking about trying to make socks on circulars.
