I barely know how to knit (and by this, I mean I taught myself how to knit and purl, I THINK), but I know how to crochet, so I think I could read a knitting pattern, maybe. For those who have made these, would it be a good beginner project?

I'm new to knitting, and i'd love to try to make these. Can anyone tell me what is the difference between sock yarn and regular yarn?

sock yarn is thin. You knit it with small needles: American 1,2, or 3. "Regular" yarn is usually fatter on bigger needles.

However, lace weight is "regular" and thin too. Often, sock yarn has a bit of nylon in it to help keep the socks from wearing out.

DON'T start knitting with cheap synthetics. PM me if you don't have some nice wool.

I'll knit along with you. I'll pick up my yarn tonight or tomorrow. I am going to make them for my daughter, I think she will like them.

Teesha Moore inspired patches--anyone want to swap?

I really really really want to make these. This would be a fun way to use up some of my stash (Sadly I'm not gonna use sock yarn, I don't have extra $$ for it right now), but I don't know how to purl.... Is it possible to get a similar result w/o purling?

You're going to have to purl to do the ribbing pattern - even knitting in the round.

It's not hard - look up a how-tube video on you-tube

I like this. I'm making a sweater dress since those seem to be back in fashion and thigh-highs would be fun to make!

I know this thread hasn't been posted in for a while, but I just wanted to say thank you for the great pattern. I too, will attempt these, on circular needles, no less!  I have only ever tried knitting one other time a handful of years ago.  These look easy enough because it's only knitting and purling.  And then, Youtube will help me out with stitch tutorials to refresh my memory :0)
