The Cottage socks are finally here! So, I have to start out by saying, if you have never knit socks before this is your chance. I’M NOT KIDDING. I was scared for the longest time to learn how to knit socks, all I had ever seen was the insane amount of needles (DPN’s are terrifying and you can’t change my mind) so I would just avoid the idea of learning to knit socks. BUT one day, I came to find out that the Magic Loop Method (Video Tutorial HERE) can be used instead of the DPN’s. MIND BLOWN.

So, maybe it wasn’t the needles that scared you away from learning to knit socks. On one of my Instagram poll’s most you answered that the main reason you strayed away from knitting socks was the heel flap/turn. I promise you when I say this part isn’t difficult AT ALL. To better help you work your first pair of socks I went ahead and took as many instructional photos and filmed an in depth Youtube Tutorial (HERE) so that you can knit your socks along with me; step by step.

I really can’t wait to see how each of your socks turn out (please send me photos, they make my day!) You won’t regret the excitement you’ll feel finished your very first (or 100th) pair of socks!
