New sock knitter needs help!

I am trying to knitt the North County Cotton Baby Sock from this website. I have turned the heel and made the gusset. How What? I don’t understand the pattern. I got this far by watching the video on this site. (which I love this website it’s the best) But how do I do the toe. Is there a video for that?

There’s not a video that I know of. What are you having trouble with?

With that video just the heel is really done. She does the kitchener stitch for the toe. Amy does a video in Advance Techniques for the kitchener stitich. If you buy her how to video it does show you how to fininsh the sock. I bought the video and love it, It saved my butt a few time when I was learning. In fact I still use it now after three years of knitting.
And practice, practice, practice for the kitchener I still have a heck of a time with it. I have to be all a lone when I do it. I do like the way it looks on the socks.
So good luck on doing your sock.


Have you checked youtube for videos? Here is one on cast on and the kitchener stitch.

I go toe up so I’m not sure if this is a good explaiation or not but there are others.

Silver’s Sock Class teaches you how to do the grafting (Kitchener stitch) step by step, with pictures.

Good luck!

I don’t know what I am doing wrong. The sock was lopsided. And I didn’t sew the toe up good. Ended up ripping the whole sock out. I have done this more times than I can count. I just don’t understand. And I have a 6 year old daughter that wants mama to knit her a pair of socks. I was trying to practice on this pattern but I couldn’t do it. HELP! PLEASE!!

Never say couldn’t. I am sure after you practice enough times you will get it right. [B]Follow Silver’s instructions[/B] and you will do well. Try making a sock with worsted weight yarn first. Perhaps then it will alo become clear to you.
