"Hi, I can't find the knitting pattern for this book, can I have it please?"
"With the page open, right click on your mouse, this will open a new window, in the new window scroll down to and click on print. That will take you to print review, in print preview change "all" to just the pages that the pattern is on and click print. Using the cut and copy feature to paste the document into another program for printing is actually a violation of international copyright laws, but printing directly from the page is permitted. Hope this helps someone. Happy knitting!"

This would be a good starter sock pattern because it uses the worsted weight yarn. I'm not an avid sock knitter because I have a difficult time keeping the beginning of each round tight. I usually end up patching a loose connection. Does anyone know of a way to make sure the round stays nice and tight?

when I knit the second stitch at the start of each needle, I give a little pull on the yard to make sure the first stitch is held tight. Works for me!
