Socks on a Plane

Difficulty: 2-Easy


Welcome to the Socks on a Plane KAL!

Socks on a PlaneSocks 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.

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