Is there out there a super easy sock pattern for us whom have never made a sock before? I have the yarn, just need an easy pattern?

Very basic sock. http://www.theknitter.com/regiapattern.html It is one that I still do a lot of the time because it is so simple.

I'm on my sixth pair! I can't stop! Help! All I want to knit is socks!
Socks are fairly simple once you "get it". That pattern above is very easy and you will see that soon you won't even need the pattern. Just jump in and start. The first pair I made look kind of funny here and there a mistake or two but I finished them. I first thought that toe up would be easier but now I only knit top down. The reason I like top down is because I can cast on loose but to cast off loose is a bit more difficult for me.

Happy Knitting,

I just started making socks last year, and found the Yankee Knitter Pattern for socks, very helpful and it has a variety of yarn weight and sizes....Great basic pattern and very easy to follow.....

Good Luck!

I found a book called Sensational Knitted Socks by Charlene Schurch and she has some wonderful charts and patterns.

Google "universal sock pattern." I just tried to get it to post the exact link, but the server is down right now. At any rate, there is a TERRIFIC universal top-down pattern, adaptable to tiehr four or five needles and to any size foot or yarn gauge.




Life is too short to waste it on acrylic.

I'm a big fan of the "Dublin Bay Sock" which can be found here (it's a pdf): http://www.nwkniterati.com/movabletype/archives/MossyCottage/DublinBay4.pdf#search=%22dublin%20bay%20sock%22

I also second "Sensational Knitted Socks" - terrific book with dozens of great sock stitch patterns and constructions.
