2-at-a-Time Socks: Revealed Inside. . . The Secret of Knitting Two at Once on One Circular Needle; Works for any Sock Pattern!

by Melissa Morgan-Oakes

Hardcover, 2007






Knitting one sock is fun and rewarding, but finishing its partner can become a chore that leaves well-intentioned knitters suffering from "second sock syndrome." With this two-at-a-time technique you can easily finish a full pair of socks on the same day. Step-by-step photographs illustrate how to cast on and knit two socks together on one long circular needle, whatever the pattern or shape. Lonely, abandoned single socks are now a thing of the past!

This book is great for anyone who is frustrated by the idea of finishing one complete sock and only being halfway done with the project. With one small exception, the instructions are very clear and easy to use. After one pair of socks I am feeling pretty confident about tackling harder projects.

Being a person who collects skills, this is one that I don't have yet. The book is very thorough and has lots of large pictures. No eye strain when your trying to see if the yarn is on top or underneath the needle.

I like the technique that is presented. However I am having some trouble figuring it out. I think that with a little bit of free time and minimal distractions that I will be able to figure it out.

One thing that I do like about this book is that all the patterns can be adapted to allow for DPN

knitting. Which, for someone that is having trouble getting the 2 at a time on one circular thing down I think it is a good idea.

There are quite a few sock patterns in this book that I do want to try. The patterns seem to be somewhat simple, and the socks are very nice. While I may need some help learning how to use this technique I will use some of the patterns even if I have to use a different technique.

This book could be great, but this first edition has so many errors in the teaching section that it is almost useless to a novice knitter. A great cause of confusion and frustration for me, until I spent many hours reading thru Ravelry posts on the errors.

I look forward to a new edition or printing

I love the patterns from this book! Even as an avid knitter, I have avoided socks and DPNS. This book makes socks amazingly simple. I cannot wait for the toe-up book by Melissa Morgan-Oakes.
