I’m getting an itch to try to knit a pair of socks…even if they turn out very badly, I can say that I learned how to knit a pair! :teehee:
So, what’s a good first pattern for a new sock knitter that knows [I][U]NOTHING[/U][/I] about knitting socks, and probably [I][U]nothing[/U][/I] about the terminology involved with sock knitting? Do they make patterns for knitted tube socks with no heels you have to turn or any other hard-sounding stuff? (just kidding)
I really like the “Petticoat Socks” from Melanie Falick’s book, “Weekend Knitting”, but I’ll bet they’re pretty hard for a newbie. Here’s a pic so somebody might be able to tell me if they would be hard.
Then there’s this pattern that looks pretty similar (looks like a feather and fan stitch)–how hard does this look for a first-time sock knitter?
