Tube Sock on a Round Loom
Tube socks are the best pattern for folks that really don’t like knitting a heel or a toe. But why stop there, let me tell you what else is great. You don’t have to knit a folded cuff, no specialty loom and no need to worry so much about the recipients shoe size. There are so many reasons why I just love this pattern. The fact that is looks so good makes it even better.
The combination of different knit stitches give the fabric a really cool, textured stitch. I believe this is going to be a favorite for lots of loom knitters, especially beginners.
SUPPLIES for Your Tube Socks
The list below is recommended options, feel free to use what you have on-hand, including small gauge sock looms. Since it’s a tube socks, size is not a huge concern.
For your yarn choice I recommend using a wool blend. I like acrylic and wool, acrylic and nylon or a combination of these three fibers. Again, what ever you have on hand will also work well.
