Question on turning the a beginner on knitting socks.followed the pattern and ended up with 16 stitches of the 20 remaining..i unpicked it and re did it with same result.where am i going wrong?

I love where the pattern says (the boring stuff (read it, anyway!). This pattern is not only easy to follow, it is filled with lots of tips, tricks, and advice that would be helpful to anyone, especially those new to knitting socks. I found it very amusing to read. I am looking forward to making them.

One of my goals, when I started knitting, was to make socks for my family and friends. I have to say it has been a little intimating. This pattern caught my eye immediately because it is called Easy Peasy. I can't wait to start. And the plus side is you can download on the designer's site.

I really enjoyed knitting these. I had the pair done in two days. They were my first sock project. I knit mine with worsted wool. Though, they were too big for me and fit my husband. He loved them though! I'm going to do them again though with more worsted yarn. I'm going to assume it was operator error lol. I tend to be a loose knitter sometimes. I loved this pattern though. I'll get them washed up (He wears them so much lol) and put in a pic. Any ideas on how to make this fit children? My kids all have about an 8" length and 8" circumference. Bigfeet for such tiny bodies lol.

Question about turning the heel - We are working with 20 stitches correct? Row 1 (RS) k12, ssk, k1 only accounts for 15 stitches. Do I simply knit the last 5? Or do I ssk more than once? Thanks in advance )

Don't know how to delete this comment but I figured it out!

Could you use circular needles to make these? Thanks!

You could use magic loop method. Google it.

This really is a great pattern to start out knitting socks, the worsted yarn makes the work go quickly. You can always lengthen the cuff if you want a taller sock. Just knit a couple of extra rows in the ribbing before starting to turn the heel. Once you get the basics down, you are on your way to knitting socks with finer yarn and smaller needles. I suggest using dots of silicone or puff paint on the soles of these socks if you plan on using them for slippers, since the dots will provide extra traction on slippery floors.

I've made a few pair of these, and they're great. The perfect sock to wear with my Crocs! I will say that I do reinforce the heel with a double strand because worsted does not wear as well as sock yarn. Easy to follow pattern for beginners. This is the best pattern to learn the 'mechanics' of sock making. Works up quick.

Another way of reinforcement is to k1,s1 on the r side, then p across the w side. This works well for me.
