Free Pattern: Worsted-Weight Socks for Magic Loop, Toe-Up or Top-Down

Here is a fast beginner pattern for learning to knit socks. The pattern teaches you how to make socks toe-up AND top-down- YOU decide which is your favorite!

The pattern is written for worsted-weight yarn so that your project goes quickly and it’s easy to se what you’re doing. Tip: If it’s your first time knitting socks, choose a light-colored yarn so it’s even easier to see. 

I also give you links to my video tutorials demonstrating each new technique. 


  1. Excuse me for being so dumb, but I signed up for your newsletter and can't figure out how to download your free video dictionary. Where do I go; where do I click?
