How to knit two socks at a time – the low tech version

I got asked ‘How DO you knit two socks at a time?*

It’s very low-tech – I simply use two sets of double-pointed-needles and two balls of yarn.

Knitting socks two at a time - the low tech method

I start one sock and when I’ve finished the first part (the toe-increses if it’s a toe-up) I start the second sock and knit the first part of the second sock.

Then I switch between knitting the corresponding parts of the first and the second sock until they’re both done.

This way I don’t have to make notes or try to remember details from the first sock when I knit the second sock. Yes – I know I could follow a pattern. But I can’t, can I?

I have tried the magic loop method but it doesn’t suit me… but it might suit you!

Happy knitting.
