  • You guys are awesome. You keep sharing such wonderful patterns with clear instructions and even video tutorials when needed at no cost to your appreciative audience. It’s what sets Authentic Knittingboard apart from the rest. Thank you for your generosity and great products.

  • Vivo en un lugar muy apartado de Colombia Sur America donde hace bastante frio. Mi nombre es Sonia Canabal Luna, soy madre cabeza de familia con un hijo con sindrome de down de 18 años, estoy sin empleo y consulte esta pagina porque en mis momentos difíciles de soledad aprendo a tejer; me gustaría si la persona dueña de esta empresa pudiera por favor ayudarme con algunos videos bien claros donde yo pueda aprender a tejer para ganar dinero y enseñarle a mi hijo especial este hermoso arte. Si ustedes me pueden ayudar por favor mi correo personal es somicalu@hotmail.com. gracias.

  • I’m just completing my first pair of socks on the KB fine gauge adjustable sock loom, and I’d love to try this beautiful pattern next. Is there a way I can adapt it for the fine gauge sock loom (it’s the only loom I have right now)?

    Thank you.

  • Also, what is a “flexible cast on”? So far, I only know the cast-on method that comes with the KB sock loom DVD.

  • The ewrap is a flexible cast on.

  • We will need to calculate the number of pegs needed for your size foot on that loom. Do you know more or less how many pegs you use for your size foot?

  • I use 52-54 pegs on the fine gauge sock loom.

CLOSING THE TOE

Place the stitches from peg 1 to peg 16 on  one double pointed needle

Place the remaining stitches on the second double pointed needle.

Use the kitchener stitch to close the toe.

Weave ends in. Block lightly.

Using SCC, use the double stitch to embroider some seeds on to the top of the sock. I do not recommend using beads as these make the socks uncomfortable to wear with shoes.

  • These are so cute. Love the colors.

  • Love them!

  • Love these, thank you very much.

  • Please do a video making these.

  • The colors are so bold and beautiful. Love these little socks. One word: Sweet.

  • thank you :)

  • Please make a video showing how to make these socks.

  • It is just a regular sock pattern that has a different color cuff. If you can loom a regular sock, you can use the same instructions for this. The little seeds are duplicate stitching, done after the sock is completed.

  • Hi there
    I’ve bought and I’m using the fabulous Sock Loom! And I wondered if someone could help me please?!

    At the start of the Heel & Toe Part 2 DVD, it tells me to continue wrapping until I have 5x pegs wrapped, 5x unwrapped and 5x pegs wrapped so I will then have two thirds of the pegs wrapped.

    So my question is should I wrap 5x pegs at each end of my ‘short row method’ or do I need to wrap two thirds of the number of pegs that I am currently using?

    I hope this makes sense.

    Thanks in advance!

    Genevieve

  • Yep, that makes sense. You will work with the amount of pegs that are being used. so the 2/3 rule will change with each sock based on the amount of pegs used. Does that make sense? pat

FELTING INSTRUCTIONS

Items needed:

Top Load Washer
Zippered pillow case
1 tsp of Eucalan Wool Wash or baby shampoo
Pair of jeans
2 towels

How to:
Insert felted pieces inside zippered pillow case. Set Washer to: Hot and Small cycle. Place 1 tsp of Eucalan Wool Wash or Baby Shampoo in the wash. Place the pair of jeans in the wash. Place the zippered pillow case in the wash. Allow the wash to start its cycle. Pause the wash before it goes into the Rinse cycle. Take out the zippered pillow case and check the felting process of the slippers. The slippers need to shrink to the desired size. If the slippers are not the desired size, repeat the wash cycle from the start. Make sure to remove the felted fabric before the Spin cycle. Leaving it in the spin cycle will create wrinkles. When item has reached desired size, remove items from the zippered pillow case, place them in between both towels and squeeze out as much water as you can.

To mold the slippers, have the recipient wear them for a few minutes. Once they have the foot shape, allow them to dry completely, away from the sun.

When slippers are completely dry, sew the buttons to both straps, one button on each strap. Sew the strap to the toe area of the slippers.

Puff Paint or glue: place small dots on the bottom of the sole to make the slippers less slippery.
Enjoy :).

  • do you by any chance have a similar crochet pattern? I do not know how to knit but may have to learn just to make these slippers

Double Woven Socks

Woven Socks 026Welcome my dear loom knitters! Have you ever fallen in love with yarn? You don’t have to raise your hand all the way up, just raise one finger or nod. I am guilty, so guilty to the point where all the yarn in my spare bedroom downstairs has touched my heart to the point that it has jumped inside my little shopping basket and wrapped itself around me that I just had to bring it home with me. The yarn in the Double Woven Socks called my heart, it beckoned me with its rich purples, as I put it next to my cheek, it whispered in my ear “take me home, please”. I fell for it right away and off through the checkout it went and made its way to my home. As I drove home, I wanted to knit something that will allow the beauty of its “paints” to show, I wanted to have little strands showing so that its beauty could be seen by the world. It needed a simple yet elegant stitch pattern and about a block away from my home, it hit me. I knew what I wanted the stitch to look like and I had an idea on how to achieve it.  In the 15 minutes that it took me to get home, I had formulated a design in my head and off to work I went! May I present you, the Double Woven Socks.  Warm enough to be worn during cold winter mornings or sturdy enough to be worn during hikes or to wear as “slipper socks” around the home. They have a delicate picot cuff and then the Double Woven Stitch pattern around the leg, the sole is worked solely in stockinette stitch to provide the knitter with a quick project and the wearer with a non-obtrusive stitch pattern around the foot.

Enjoy!

Cut the yarn leaving an 18 inch tail.

CLOSING THE TOE

Place the first 20 stitches on one double pointed needle.

Place the remaining 20 stitches on another double pointed needle.

Use the kitchener stitch to graft the toe close.

Thread a tapestry needle through the tail hanging from the sock.

How to:

Insert the tapestry needle into the first stitch on the front needle as if to knit and slip it off the knitting needle.
Insert the tapestry needle through the second stitch on the front needle as if to purl and leave the stitch on the knitting needle. Pull gently on the yarn remove any yarn slack.
Insert the tapestry needle into the first stitch on the back needle, as if to purl, and slip the stitch off the knitting needle.
Insert the needle into the second stitch on the back knitting needle as if to knit. Leave the stitch on the knitting needle.  Pull gently on the yarn to remove any slack.

Repeat steps 1-4.

Need extra help with the Kitchener?  Visit the following link at Knitty.com for step by step instructions on how to Kitchener

I also have a video that demonstrates the Kitchener Stitch at the following link. It is not to close sock but it uses the same grafting technique of the kitchener stitch.

Weave ends in and block lightly.

  • I love your work. Would knitting this using the AKB sock loom, make a big difference in the finished size?

  • Karen,
    You will need more stitches on the AKB to provide the same circumference. Probably around 60 pegs rather than the 40 I used. You can follow the pattern, as the design is a multiple of 4. The heel will be over 30 stitches rather than 20, but you probably already have the information on how to do heels on that amount of pegs, if you don’t, drop me a note and I can help you figure out the entire heel/toe process.

  • Thanks Isela.

  • What a creative pattern, I will definitely be trying it out asap. Thanks for sharing this!

  • This is beautiful. Thanks.

  • Fantastic article post.

  • I am working on the sock loom. I used 50 pegs. I don’t know what to do now that I am ready to start the heel/toe since 2/3rds of 25 isn’t an even division. Any help would be appreciated.
    Thank you.

  • Barbara, try addind one stitch. it may make it a little roomy, but the division works better.

  • Thank you very much for this pattern. I’m new to loom knitting and have just completed my first sock using this pattern and the youtube videos demonstrating some of the steps. I never thought I’d be able to loom knit socks, but with your help I have! Thank you.

  • How do I yo k2tog?
