Sock patterns, baby dress patterns and baby hat patterns What advice would you give someone starting this project? Learn the Turkish Cast-on because once you do, it will become second nature to you! It leaves a very smooth feeling sock and is totally seamless! There are Internet sites with videos to learn this particular cast on. NOTE (added 8-3-11): For anyone creating socks, I want to add that when I knit socks and get that little gap where the heel, gusset and ankle meet, I don't do any fancy trick knitting to close it, but what I do is knit a few ankle rounds,then go back and use a dpn to gently tug at the loops in the first ankle round until all are evened out including closing that unsightly gap. It works really well. It may seem a little tricky, but if you are knitting socks anyway, you should have no problem figuring out where to grab on and tug!
