Excuse me for posting so much about sock knitting ... it's my winter time passion 😉
I finished one of my yellow socks. After I finished it, I started thinking about knitting the other one from top. Here is why I came up this idea 💡
As I liked a toe up sock knitting pattern that I picked for my first one, I've just sticked to it for long.
After I knit many socks with this pattern, I remember the pattern almost by heart including Judy's Magic Cast On for toe and short row heel.
(Toes and heels are tricky parts of sock knitting)
But I need a video tutorial to see how to do Invisible Ribbed Bind-off in the end. I don't know why but I always forget it and I make few mistakes (and have to go back and forth) ... Hmmmmm.
Then I started thinking about knitting a sock from top. By doing so, I can start with Twisted German stretch cast on, knit all the way down to heel, make heel by German Short Row Heel for example, and knit down to toe. Closing toe with Kitchener Stitch won't be much complicated than invisible ribbed bind-off.
So I decided to try top down knitting for my other side of the yellow socks. I wish it works well and I find my best practice in the end.
That's my Needle Work Monday. Happy knitting, crocheting, sewing etc to all!
