The Hand Knitter's Guide to Knitting Socks on a Single Circular Needle DVD with Leslye Solomon
There's nothing bigger in knitting right now than making hand-knitted socks, but many knitters feel intimidated by the traditional method of knitting socks using multiple double-pointed needles. Toss away those double points because you will never need them again! Knitting Socks on a Single Circular Needle shows you an easy-to-learn method of making socks (*and other projects) in the round using only one circular needle. Leslye Solomon will take you step-by-step through the process of casting on, knitting the leg, shaping the heel and gusset, knitting the foot, and shaping the toe using a single needle. You will learn about different fibers available for socks, and how to properly measure the foot. Already use double points, but want to switch? You'll learn how to convert what you know about sock knitting to this new method. Also learn how traditional sock patterns written for double points can be converted to the single needle method. Included with the DVD is a companion multi-gauge pattern for basic socks made with a single circular needle. This DVD is packed with information and you will appreciate being able to refer to it again and again.
Bonus: *Once you learn this method, you can use it for other knit projects in the round such as neck ribbing, knitting children's sleeve ribbing, the top of hats, or any time instructions direct you to use double pointed needles.
