How to Knit Two Toe-Up Socks at the Same Time

How to Knit Two Toe-Up Socks at the Same Time

When we knit two socks at the same time, we can put them on right after we bind off stitches. This solves one of the saddest knitting issues – forgotten lonely socks with a not-knitted or (at best!) half-knitted mate.

It also eliminates the need to make notes if we decide to adjust the sock pattern. Because we make both socks simultaneously, they will be identical twins even if we change the pattern “on the go”.

The fact that we knit two socks together doesn’t mean that there should be lots of needles and tangled balls of yarn lying around us while we hectically go back and forth between socks. No. We can make two socks at the same time with just one long circular needle and one ball of yarn.

Here’s how we can do it when we knit toe-up socks, like the Sneaker Socks we made during a recent knit-along.

This technique can be easily adjusted to make two top-down socks at the same time and even to make two mittens at the same time. No more lonely socks and mittens! 🙂
