Weekend Knit Notes

Knit 2 for the effort of 1

Welcome to Socktober. It’s a month long celebration of sock knitting.

I have never had much success at knitting two socks on one circular needle. I easily got frustrated when my yarn tangled and twisted around the cable of my knitting needle.

I am once again attempting this method of casting on for two socks on a circular using the Magic Loop technique which is known as taat, two at a time.

I divided the sock yarn into two balls.

  1. cast on for one sock on a set of dpns
  2. transferred it to my circular needle
  3. Repeat 1 and 2 for the second sock.

Honestly, this knitting two at a time is for not for me. I don’t have the patience to untangle my yarn.

Please tell me something about this technique that may change my mind forever.

For now it’s cuff down and one at a time which makes susceptible to Second Sock Syndrome.

  1. I don’t know if this will help or not but when I do taat socks I don’t divide the yarn into separate balls. I cake it, put it into a ziplock bag, and feed one end from the top of the bag, and the other end from a hole I make in the bottom of the bag. It still sometimes gets a little twisted but you can lift the cake out and untwist with a few turns. Hope this helps!
