As promised, here’s the pattern I used for the class I taught on toe-up socks 2-at-a-time on magic loop!
- This pattern is written for knitting 2 socks at a time on one long circular needle (magic loop). I recommend a needle at least 32” long – but I prefer a 40” circular needle for magic loop.
- Pattern features a stockinette stitch foot, short-row heel with no wraps, a short ribbed leg, and rolled stockinette cuff. Pattern assumes you know Judy’s Magic Cast On (or other toe-up cast-on) — or follow the link provided to learn how.
- Two sizes are offered for circumference: 0-12 months is approx. 4” sock circumference, unstretched; 12-36 months is approx. 5.25” sock circumference, unstretched. (The pattern calls for Cascade Fixation, which is very stretchy; the pattern is designed to work with the stretchiness.) To further adjust the fit of the sock, a sizing chart is offered in the pattern, listing child’s shoe size, approximate age, and suggested sock foot length.
- Notions: long circular needle with a flexible cable (size US 5/3.75mm), stitch marker(s), darning/tapestry needle
If that sounds good to you, and you’d like to make these, go ahead and download the pattern (PDF format). Enjoy!
P.S. Here are the other two pairs of socks — the sample pair I had partway done for the class (blue), and the pair I started during class (pink).
