Socks on a Plane are knit mostly in stockinette stitch with a cable up the outside of each sock for added interest.

It is a great pattern for beginner sock knitters or more experienced knitters who desire a small project that doesn’t require too much thinking.

In this Knit Along you will learn how to:

  • Knit toe-up socks
  • Do Judy’s Magic Cast On for a seamless toe
  • Knit in the round using double pointed needes, magic loop, or 2 circulars (your choice)
  • Knit 2-at-a-time using the magic loop method (if you already know how to knit socks in the round)
  • Cable, with or without a cable needle
  • Keep track of which row you are on (it can be tricky with cables)
  • Adjust the size to fit your foot
  • Do Jeny’s Surprisingly Stretchy Bind Off
  • Read a chart

If you’re still not convinced that sock knitting is for you, check out the Why Knit Socks blog post for my top 10 reasons to knit socks.

The KAL starts July 14th and ends September 29th, and is held during our regular Stitch & Spin times:

Thursday 2-4pm
Thursday 6-8 pm
Saturday 10-noon

Drop in as often as you like during these times for help and encouragement.

Participants must know how to cast on, purl, knit, and bind off prior to starting this KAL.

The pattern is free on Ravelry. Purchase the yarn at Mountain Hollow Farm and the KAL is FREE!
