Help Me With Figure 8 Cast On?
Hi
My project this weekend is to learn how knit two socks at once, toe up method. Looks like I need to learn this Figure-8 cast on and I'm having trouble.

Can anyone direct me to a good site with very clear directions and pics or possibly vids? The ones I've found so far are rather confusing.

I appreciate your help!

This is not figure 8, but my absolute favorite way to cast on for socks. Unbelievably easy and works great. The tutorial is written for two at once toe up on magic loop, but I'm sure you could easily adapt it to two circs if need be (you didn't specify).

Thanks for that!
I"ll have to try it next pair. For now I found Judy's Magic Cast On and it was very easy and worked beautifully. I'm done with both toes!

Man, I LOVE knitting two socks at once--awesome!
