Gather your supplies as we are going to embark on our very first loom-a-long! But it is not just any loom-a-long, we will be focusing for the entire month of May on SOCKS! We will be following the Double Woven Sock Pattern.
Although the pattern was written for the All-n-One knitting loom, I will be able to help you to adapt it to the Sock Loom, so this is a great chance to see how to adapt a pattern made for one sock loom and create it on another sock loom with a different gauge.
What you will need:
Loom: All-n-One Knitting Loom or the Sock Loom
Yarn: If using the All-n-One Knitting Loom, you will need 150-180 yards of worsted weight yarn. If using the Sock Loom, I recommend obtaining about 350 yards of fingering weight sock yarn.
Tools: tapestry needle, 2 double pointed knitting needles in a either a size 8 (if using worsted weight yarn) or a size 2 (if using fingering weight yarn).
The loom-a-long will start on May 1st, we will break up the pattern into 7 sections: Swatch for your Loom: this is the day when we will focus on adapting the pattern to different size looms, calculating peg numbers and length of the sole, Cuff, Leg, Heel, Sole, Toe, Closing the Toe.
