I knit my first sock ever using Knittinghelp.com's Working the heel of a sock video. She uses a free baby sock pattern (North Country Cotton Baby Socks). I suggest you start with baby socks since they are so small, they knit up fast, and they use the same techniques as adult socks.

When I graduated to adult socks, I bought Paton's Next Steps Booklet which has sock and slippers patterns for every type of yarn (fine to chunky) and very detailed instructions. The only thing is there are a lot of corrections to look out for. I just finished two pairs of the Basic Fine Sock and I found them very easy to knit (except for the places where there are errors, but I just noticed today that they issued corrections on the website, dumb me! I never thought to check!!)

LOVE!
Did you use a pattern or did you just whip them up with your crochet superpower?

The brim will be turned up though (for extra-extra warmth around the ears!)

Hi knitters!

I don't know if this question has been answered before. I did a quick search without result. Here I go!

I'm knitting a hat for a friend. I want it to be really warm so I'm using the double-knitting technique (I do k1, p1 as shown in the knittinghelp video). I made a swatch and it gives me 6 stitches per inch on one side. To make a hat with 21 inches circumference, do I have to double the total?

6 x 21 = 126
126 x 2 = 252

Of course it's huge. I tried again, this time removing 10% (as per this post) and rounding it down so it's divisible by 8 (as per this video). So I'm now down to 224 stitches and it's still huge.

Should I cast on 126 stitches, and double-knit on that? Won't that be too small?

Thanks so much for your help!
