Knitting Socks on Two Circular Needles – Continental Style

by Dorothy on March 12, 2011

Where I show casting on and knitting the ribbing of the sock. If people are interested I may make another video showing how I make the remaining parts of the sock.

Here is the pattern I used, which was free on the internet.

And I also recommend a book by Cat Bordhi called “Socks Soar on Two Circular Needles”, which is how I learned the method I use. They sell it on Amazon. Here is her YT site:

And about her book…

And finally, these are the online video instructions I used for the three needle bind-off:

Go to the page and scroll all the way to the bottom. There is a video demonstrating the three-needle bind-off in Continental and English Styles, I knit Continental. This is a great site to learn techniques you might read about in a pattern, but have no idea how to do it. For example, when someone ends their pattern (like this one I used) with the instructions, “Graft sts. together ( I used 3 needle bind off). Sew in loose ends.” And you say, “Huh?” Then just go to the site above and you’ll find out how! It’s an easy way to bind off, makes a nice seam too. It’s also the bind-off I use when attaching knitted arms to the bodies of my knitted sweaters.

Ok, that’s enough, your brain my be full and mine is empty. Must have more coffee….
