Class Sessions

Introduction to Two at a Time (9:02)
Meet Kate and begin class by going over the tools and materials you’ll need to get started. Then she discusses all the benefits of knitting socks two at a time.

Top-Down Method (20:28)
Next, start knitting your top-down socks by casting on using either Kate’s preferred long-tail method or the twisted German method. From there, knit the legs, first in ribbing and then in stockinette, and work the heel flaps and gussets.

Finishing Top-Down (33:43)
Finish up your top-down socks by turning the heels, completing the side gussets, and knitting the foot and toe. You can close the toes with the Kitchener stitch or any other toe method you prefer.

Toe-Up Method (20:52)
Now start knitting your socks toe-up with the two-at-a-time method using Judy’s Magic Cast-On. After that, Kate helps you work through toe increases, knitting the foot and making gusset increases.

Finishing Toe-Up (27:55)
Complete your toe-up socks by turning the heels and binding off. Kate teaches you how to work in stockinette and ribbing, as well as demonstrating the Russian lace bind-off and the surprisingly stretchy bind-off.

Working From Existing Patterns (14:52)
Wrap things up by learning how to modify any sock pattern for knitting two at a time. Kate also explains why swatching is important when using the two-at-a-time method.
