Toe-Up 2-at-a-Time Socks
Knitwear designer Melissa Morgan-Oakes revolutionized the world of sock making with 2-at-a-Time Socks, showing delighted knitters how to simultaneously create two socks on a single circular needle. Now, Morgan-Oakes demonstrates how to knit two socks at a time while working from the toe up – allowing you to try on the socks as you work, avoid running out of yarn before the feet are complete, and avoid using the dreaded kitchener stitch to finish off the toes. The technique can be applied to absolutely any sock pattern, but Morgan-Oakes also provides 15 original sock designs for men, women, children, and babies; each pattern includes row-by-row instructions, charts for large and small feet, and four-color photographs of the finished product.
