DK Triple T Socks

Free Button

FREE! Have trouble with second sock syndrome? Try knitting both socks at a time! As a bonus, when you knit them toe-up there is no need to waste yarn or time on swatching. The Triple T sock pattern is a multi-size and multi-gauge pattern for knitting two toe-up socks at a time on two circular needles. It uses a Turkish or Eastern cast-on, an inverted heel flap and gusset, and finishes with the EZ sewn bind off. In addition to fifteen sizes for seven different gauges there are four different stitch patterns you plug into the pattern. With this pattern you can stop second sock syndrome forever and warm the toes of all of your favorite people! If you are already familiar with the process of knitting two socks toe-up on two circs, try the standard pattern for all the size and gauge calculations but without the detailed explanations of the techniques.
