Do you want to learn to knit socks? Does the thought of knitting an entire sock and then starting over on number two seem daunting? Do you wonder if you'll have enough yarn to knit two socks? Two-at-a-time Toe-up socks solves all of those problems and gives you some cool new skills to boot! We'll learn the incredibly cool (and magical!) Judy's Magic Cast On, learn to knit with two circular needles, learn to knit two socks at once, and learn to produce a toe-up sock that looks and fits like a real sock.
Supplies you'll need:
· 100 gram skein of sock yarn/fingering weight yarn, wound into two equal balls.
· 2 24" circular needles, US size #1-#3. If you're a loose needle, #1 will probably be best; if you're a tight knitter, #3 is best. Best of all, though, is knitting a swatch with the yarn you want to use and determine what size needle will help you achieve the best gauge. I'd aim for about 7 stitches to the inch.
· Usual knitting tools.
