Anyone have a simple sock pattern?
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.

Whatever method you choose socks are so fun!

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.

The North Country Cotton baby sock is a great way to learn sock basics too! There are helpful videos for each step, especially the heel flap and turning the gusset.

Plus they go quickly compared to an adult sized sock, I used Bernat CottonTots which is a worsted weight cotton.

I made my first pair of socks this weekend, using Dawn Brocco's pattern, but am going to try my hand at some self-striping yarn using Silver's tutorial! Thanks Silver!!!

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.
