Thursday Thirteen – Easy Knit and Crochet Sock Patterns

I said in a previous post that my sister knits beautiful socks.
Every time I saw her wearing her socks, I wanted to make beautiful socks too.
But I couldn’t. Or I thought I couldn’t. I didn’t think I could learn to knit. I didn’t think I could learn to knit with four needles. I didn’t think there was any other way to knit a sock. I couldn’t find a crocheted sock pattern that didn’t look hokey.
So then every time I saw my sister wearing her beautiful socks, I wanted to pull her hair.
(okay, not really.
well…
yeah, really, sort of.
Sorry.)

I learned to knit with four needles.
I also found a bunch of free patterns teaching how to make socks, patterns for two needle knit socks and Hey! patterns for crochet socks that are very nice.
