Tube Socks Free Pattern and Video

Tube Sock on a Round Loom

Loom Knit Tube Socks

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

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.

HOOK: Any loom hook – I use KB
STITCH MARKERS: Any type that fits your loom
YARN: 330 – 350 yards of worsted weight. I used Sheepish

    You are very talented in many areas as teaching is not an easy skill for everyone. I enjoy your demonstrations. On this tube sock, would it still turn out well with just the e wrap or just the u wrap? I ask because I have arthritis in my feet and textures are uncomfortable and sometimes very painful. I do like the tube socks though. I may be new to loom knitting but I do like it. Thank you.

      Hi Laree, first thank you ! You can make it with just the eWrap but I find it a lot more bulky. The Uwrap should not create more discomfort then the eWrap

    Thank you for your videos I’m a learner and love your methods and clear explanations.

    Can you advise if I can make a hat with pompom yarn? I see the scarf but would like to try a hat with it. Thank you
