I have been fortunate to have a life filled with knitting and beautiful yarns. Then it took on a life of it's own. I began designing knit patterns, spinning, and learning everything I could about fiber and now I'm hand dyeing. It's turned into a lifestyle of teaching and sharing the things I love with wonderful people.
October 2013, I celebrated 49 years of being in this crazy colorful world of Fiber Artist.
This pattern is written for everyone who has wanted to make a Toe Up sock but just hasn't yet, for whatever reason. It is written just like I was sitting there with you teaching you and talking you through every step. I've included video links, comments and detailed helps a long the way.
There is a chart a long with the written instructions so you can also begin to learn how to read a chart, so if you haven't tackled learning charts this will help you to look at the chart and then read the matching row. You will be surprised at how easy it is.
Once you get the hang of this sock I'm positive that you will be making more toe up's.
Hope you love it.
These socks are made on 2 circular needles and I highly suggest starting out that way but if you are more comfortable with using Magic Loop or double points you can easily do that.
YARN Choice: I knitted these with Brown Sheeps Wildfoote, BUT, you can use any fingering or sock weight yarn that you prefer as long and it works with a US 2 needle and you can get 400-420 yards.
One more note, if it helps, I suggest using a post it, to use as a book mark a long the pattern. Anything that helps you simplify and keep track will be useful.
