  2. Help, I have read your book and it has reignited my determination to knit socks. But can't get my brain around how to measure the foot. Do I measure the foot at the widest point?

    1. Yes, measure around the ball of your foot and that will give you the right size for your stitch calculation :-) xx

  5. Christine, have you considered creating a video of your basic sock pattern for those of us who are visual learners? I have your book, but it would be really great if there was also a video that I could follow along as I attempt my first pair of knitted socks. I'm a very beginner knitter...

    1. Yes, that's my plan for next year - the first videos will be with the next sock tutorial that will be coming out in January and then I'll be adding them to the Sockalong tutorials during the year :-) xx

  6. Hi Christine,
    Could you please explain how to make the toe cast off (kitchener stitch) without ending up with ears. I have looked at several online but cannot seem to understand.
    All the best for 2017

    1. If you miss out the set-up stitches at the beginning that should avoid the stitches at that end - you're already doing the "without ears" part at the other end. I usually sew my end in so that it tucks the last stitch down and you don't get an "ear". They do disappear with wear and washing too. Hope that helps, and all the best to you too! Xx

  9. Hi. I live in Australia. The South East of Queensland. I am so glad that I have found you. I love what I see and it is going to take some time to take it all in.
    I have never knitted a pair of socks !!! Yes I know. I have been busy knitting baby things as expecting my first great grandson mid October and in reality probably will not wear much of what I have knitted as it will be too hot! Also just about finished a feather and fan throw for my daughter. So....I shall dig out my 4 needles and knit a pair of your socks. Happy knitting, and pleased to meet you...with warm regards. Lyn

    1. Hello Lyn, it's lovely to hear from you! Congratulations on your impending great grandson (it does seem strange to think that it will be too hot in October - we can never say that in the UK! :) ) and I'll look forward to hearing about your socks xx

  10. HI Christine, I wondered if you have a good, simple welly sock pattern that is done on a circular needle?
    Thanks

    1. Hi! I think the 8ply (DK) pattern would be best for wellies, although if you want thicker yarn even than DK you can still use the Sockalong tutorials/pattern and the stitch calculation in the tension tutorial to work out how many stitches you'd need to fit the foot. Hope that helps! xx

  11. Beautiful socks. Do you have a boot sock pattern?

    1. Thank you! Yes, the 6ply and 8ply (DK) patterns are both for boot socks xx

  12. Hi I have made several pairs of your fabulous socks. Query. Is there anyway of adapting the sock pattern to make wrist warmers? Have masses of wool and great need of wrist warmers!

    1. I don't see why not, you'd just need to work out how many stitches to cast on for your wrists. I imagine you could use the sock stitch calculation if you wanted to get technical and measure your wrists to get a good fit. I made some with some sample yarn a couple of years ago if that's any help - you can read about them here: http://www.winwickmum.co.uk/2016/09/yarndale-countdown_23.html xx

  13. Do you have printables for the sockalong? I was going to make my own, but it's not letting me copy to paste in a word doc for printing.

    1. Hi Jeanne, if you want a paper copy of the Sockalong tutorials you can get one in the form of the Super Socks book - set out slightly differently by needle type rather than sock section but the same information. There's also an e-book version; both available through Amazon or the paperback version is available here on my blog. It's not possible to copy and paste from the Sockalong tutorials themselves xx

  14. Dear Christine, Do you have a pattern for diabetic socks for a man. I am struggling to find a suitable pattern which provides a very loose top to the sock in order to avoid constriction.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hi! It's easy to make a loose top for a sock by simply knitting the first few rounds and then starting the rib. The knitted rounds will roll over and the rib will hold the sock up but because it's not at the very top of the sock it won't dig into the leg. Hope that helps! xx

      Delete
    2. Thank you for that. I will try that but will also cast on a few extra stitches to ensure that the top is fairly roomy too.
      Much gratitude.

    3. It's worth taking a second measurement around the calf and comparing that to the ball of the foot measurement - if it's bigger, you'll need to cast on more stitches but you can either decrease those as you work down the leg or you can decrease more stitches at the gusset to get to the right size for the foot xx

  15. Thank you so much for sharing such lovely patterns...I found your blog while looking for a basic knee high pattern. I'm knitting for a dog rescue promises auction, I've knit mid-calf socks for years but someone has requested knee length socks, hints for a good for would be very welcome!

    1. Hi Gill, you can adapt the Sockalong pattern for knee high socks, you just need to incorporate some shaping for the calves. Alternatively, if you knit rib socks then they should stretch to accommodate the calf without needing to shape them, but you'd have to take a view of how big a stretch it would be and whether ribbing would do the trick. In any case, you'd probably need to take a calf measurement as well as the foot measurement to be sure that you were going to have enough stitches for that part of the leg xx

  16. Hello, I am making your Simple rib socks right now as my first project! I couldn’t knit a week ago but your pattern is so easy to follow it’s been a breeze so far. I am just up to the heel turn and although I added a extra purl to allow for 4 extra stitches for a bigger size it looks like i’ll be left with some leftover heel stitches - I have 4 on one side but 8 on the other. Not sure how to fix this or what I could do to avoid this happening again? Thank you in advance, Greta xx

    1. You need to keep decreasing until all of the stitches are used up, but if you've got more on one side than the other and you're sure that your set up row is right then it sounds like you may have forgotten to do a decrease somewhere. You'll need to take it back - have a look at videos on lifelines on YouTube before you do (there's a good one by Knit Purl Hunter) so that you don't lose stitches - and have a look at my YouTube video on the heel turn: www.bit.ly/EasyLaceHeelTurn - different pattern, same process. You can also join my Facebook groups if you're on Facebook - they're great for real-time help: Winwick Mum Sockalong for the basic Sockalong sock and Winwick Mum Knit n Natter for any other sock pattern help. Hope that's useful! xx
