Whale Done Socks KAL: Figure 8 Cast On

Video Tutorial: Figure Eight Cast on Method for knitting toe up socks.
Are your ready to start knitting your Whale Done Socks? We will be using a figure 8 cast on.

Before we begin, make sure you have read the KAL Introduction and have your materials ready to go. If you would like a printable copy of the entire pattern, the Whale Done Socks Pattern is available in my shop.

Lesson 1: Figure Eight Cast On

Knitting toe up socks may feel a little awkward at first, but it has a few very nice benefits that you don't get when working socks from the leg down.
  1. It's easy to try the sock on as you go to make sure it is perfectly sized.
  2. You don't have to play "Yarn Chicken" when you are knitting socks with leftover yarn. After the foot of the sock is made, you can simply make the leg longer or shorter to suit your needs.
  3. There's no toe grafting.
Like anything, this method takes a little bit of practice, but once you get the hang of it, it only takes a few seconds to cast on and knit the first round of your socks.

Here's how it works.



Now it's your turn!
