socks From

Why toe-up socks? Ahhh, let me count the ways:

  • It’s a new technique to learn
  • You can try them on as you go – perfect fit
  • If you’re short on yarn, you can knit the important part first, then knit up until you run out of yarn.
  • And…. it’s a new technique for you to try out.

Great beginner pattern, check out her site called String and Air!

    Now that you mention it, knitting toe-up socks makes more sense. I usually knit the regular kind but will give this pattern a try. Thanks for sharing it.

    I like toe up because I can’t master the kitchner stitch and my toes always end up looking horrible!

    Want to try the toe-up style because the cuff-down doesn’t seem to fit as good as it should.

    Just love toe-up socks — it’s easy to try them on as you go along, and there are no seams or joins at all. And my kids (in their 40s!!) love them.
    Just spotted an ad for knitting both socks at once, using circular needles — good idea, will try it next time, instead of having to keep track of # of rows to duplicate on other sock.

    A friend recommended a toe-up pattern and I’d like to try one.
