Has anyone ever made up their own sock pattern?
Or where do you find good ones? What's your favorite?

Once you get the hang of knitting socks, I think it's pretty easy to design your own.

I have TONS of sock pattern links in my favorites!

I've done several of my own sock patterns. Once you have the fundamentals down, it's pretty easy I found that Knitty Gritty helped me a lot & this episode has a LOT of tips on it for measuring, etc. You can also get several tips @ www.socknitters.com and, of course, our Silver's Class is very helpful with the fundamentals
HAVE FUN

I think what I'm afraid of is the turn heel part...like if you make up your own pattern, how do you know how many to knit before you turn?

When turning a heel you 1st knit (or purl....I usually start with the purl side) 1/2 the # of sts on the heel flap plus 2. for example, if you have 32 sts on your heel flap, you would purl across 18 sts(16 sts plus 2 sts) to begin turning; then p2tog, p1, turn

I got the half plus 2 for the purl row, what about the knit row? which is a much smaller number, any system for figuring this out?
