I came up with this method of using 3 needles instead of the usual 4 needles because it was easier to knit and less awkward than the 4 needles. I could easily design many sock patterns this way because the work was divided in half-front and back. I could easily keep track of which side to work the heel on also. I love doing socks this way and I think any sock knitter would love it too. It seems quicker to knit this method. Have fun trying a new way to knit socks!
