This pattern is written to walk a knitter through the process of knitting socks on TWO CIRCULAR NEEDLES from beginning of cuff, down to toe on worsted weight sock yarn.

This pattern was designed for use when I teach sock knitting. While it is a very in-depth pattern, it is not meant to replace a class.

Want to learn to knit socks on two circular needles? This pattern will take a sock knitter to sock boot camp and walk you through the two circular needle process step by step!

Using heavy worsted weight yarn, these socks are a quick knit that any feet would be thrilled to wear. The pattern is offered in one size to allow the knitter to learn the basics of sock knitting on two circular needles and will fit most medium sized feet.

This pattern provides step-by-step instructions for the intuitive heel turn, how to knit socks on two circular needles, the fitted arch and the step-by-steps to work the Kitchener stitch.

This pattern has been test knit by multiple knitters.
