Knitting socks is something I enjoy very much. I always have a pair of socks in the works. My husband is the biggest fan of my knitted socks. Even if I made him nothing but socks, he would be the happiest man in the world.

The magic loop is my preferred method. Unless I’m knitting with many colors, I usually work two socks at the same time.

Normally I would knit socks using a size 0, casting on 56 stitches. Because these socks are knitted using the color stranded method, your tension will be tighter and the fabric will have less elasticity. Even though the socks might appear to be big enough, they won’t have the same stretch as one-color socks. Consequently, I used a size 2 needle, casting on 64 stitches.
