For exotic and handspun yarns


Two Patterns in this Pack

Skill Level: Intermediate with many Variations.

Knitting Socks on Circular Needles. This is an ingenious technique. Two circular needles are used to knit a tube. One half of the tube is worked off the points of one circular needle, and the other half rests on the band of the second, which has just enough bend to give the working needles the angle they need. While not really faster than knitting with four double pointed needles, this technique is certainly less intimidating to the beginning sock knitter.

And that's not all - on circular needles you can actually knit a sock in either direction: from the cuff down, or from the toe up. These instructions will give you all the options.

After you learn how to do it you become the designer. Any color combination can be added to these basic shapes. You can add cables, or even lace to your socks.

We love socks!


  • Knitting Socks on Circular Needles: This pattern starts you through the basic steps needed to knit any tube on circular needles. Then we take a few foot measurements and calculate how many stitches you will need for your project. Follow the simple instructions and you'll be turning a heel and finishing a toe in no time.
  • Toe-Up Circular Needle Socks: Learn to do it the other way. Start down at the toe with a sealed cast-on, work through the foot and heel, and finish off the cuff to desired length. A very nice way to knit a sock.

By downloading these patterns you pay less than the price of two patterns individually mailed! And you don't pay for shipping -- That adds up to big savings.

Yarn Suggestion: Socks are generally best with a lighter weight yarn. Will need approximately 4 ounces, depending on size.


As with all SpinCraft Knitting Patterns these items can be knit to any size, using almost any yarn. What you will do is measure yourself, measure the gauge that comes from your yarn, and then perform some easy calculations to get the figures needed to knit this piece. You are the designer!
