Sock Patterns for the Knifty Knitter Loom

Please enjoy this collection of free sock patterns to knit on Knifty Knitter looms, whether you're looking for baby socks, ones that are ribbed, ones with a toe, or something else entirely different.

You could make some cozy winter socks to keep the feet of a loved one warm this winter or whip up a special treat for your own feet. Have fun!

Toe Socks

Toe Socks

This sock pattern was done by Rowena at Rostitchery. Over there, she explains her thought process in creating this pattern as well as showing how it's done. As you can see, she's created a distinct "toe" at the tip of the sock. These were made holding 2 different colors of yarn together as one yarn, so it will result in a thicker finished sock than it would be if only one yarn were used.

Skill Level: Intermediate

You will need:

  • Knifty Knitter hook
  • 2 skeins of medium-weight yarn
  • Blue round loom (5 inches wide)

Lounge Socks

KWM shows us how she made these lounge socks with the small round loom. This pattern is full of abbreviations, so if you are new to knitting, it might not be your first choice.

Skill Level: Intermediate

You will need:

  • Knifty Knitter hook
  • 6-8 ounces of super bulky weight yarn
  • Blue Knifty Knitter round loom
  • Stitch markers
  • Peg markers

Baby Booties

Isela shared this pattern for baby booties on her blog. Unlike the other sock patterns on this page, it uses the pink long loom (the shortest loom in the set).

A loom clip is used to shorten the loom to a smaller size. This pattern has knitting abbreviations, so a beginner may find it frustrating. It's a good example of how to utilize a long loom to make socks.

Skill Level: Intermediate

You will need:

  • 9-inch Knifty Knitter long loom (usually pink)
  • 2 skeins of medium weight yarn
  • Knifty Knitter loom clip

Basic Long Socks

This is pattern for beginners for knitting a basic adult sock on the blue loom.

Skill Level: Beginner

You will need:

  • Blue round loom
  • Knifty Knitter Hook
  • Yarn needle
  • 2 skeins of very stretchy yarn (acrylic works well)

Note: Knit using two strands of yarn as one.

  1. Begin by making a cast on drawstring. This will be the toe of the sock and is used to cinch the toe closed. It is only difficult the first time you make one. After, that you will be very glad that you learned to do this. It comes in handy for so many projects with the Knifty Knitter.
  2. E-wrap the loom and knit off until the knit measures at least 15 inches. This will make ankle-high socks. You may want it longer for tube socks.
  3. Remove the sock from the loom beginning at the peg furthest from the working yarn. Remove two loops. Feed the loop on the farthest peg through the next loop using a crochet hook. Continue doing this until you have reached the working yarn.
  4. Turn the knit in at the top of the sock and whip stitch it into place. This forms the double thick edge at the top of the sock, as if you were making the cuff of pants or the brim of a hat. The double thickness will help hold the sock in place.

Slipper Socks

Mei from the Yarn Gear blog has a warm and toasty pattern for slipper socks. She also has plenty of photos of the project from start to finish. Don't miss the link to download the pattern. It's at the very top of her blog post.

You will need:

  • Red round Knifty Knitter loom and hook
  • Red worsted weight yarn
  • Dark green worsted weight yarn

Video: Slipper Socks by Pam Loomer

This video doesn't use the original brand of Knifty Knitter looms, but it gives you the basic idea of how a sock is made on a round loom. Pam does a very good job of explaining how to make the heel section of the sock. She goes through it slowly, making it easy to knit along with her.

Video: How to Knit a Sock on the Round Loom

This video utilizes the small blue round Knifty Knitter loom by Provo Craft, although the red loom is shown in the photo. This is a very good introduction to the basics of knitting a sock by American Knitter.

Video: Baby Booties Loomed on the Flower Loom

I'm a retailer of this type of loom for Provo Craft. They published this baby bootie pattern that utilizes either the flower loom or the blue round loom.

Caring Caps, Inc. produced a video of it. I would use the flower loom for infant booties and the blue round loom for older babies. If you have difficulty with the pegs on the flower loom coming out, which they are designed to do, you can simply wrap more loosely or glue the pegs in place.

If you opt to glue the pegs, the loom no longer works as well for making flowers.

        I have just finished my first pair of socks on the smallest loom. They fit well but due to using the e wrap cast on, they are very loose and are curling over. I have only been loom knitting for about 6 weeks. Does anyone have any ideas how I can have them not to curl at the tops?

        Thank you in advance.

        Hello

        Please explain what you mean 3. Remove the sock from the loom beginning at the peg furthest from the working yarn. Remove two loops. Feed the loop on the farthest peg through the next loop using a crochet hook. Continue doing this until you have reached the working yarn.

        @victoriuh: Mostly lounging socks, but it is possible to make them less bulky by using the no wrap stitch, rather than the e wrap.

        I've made lots of sock with my small and next size up round looms. Now I'm getting ready to do socks. I've been wondering, what else can be made with the round ones.

        Are any of these socks trim enough to wear with shoes, or are they all lounging socks?

        In the poll I voted I Knifty Knit all the time, because there wasn't another option such as "use occasionally." I love using knitting looms, including the Kniffty Knitters...they are so easy to use...but I don't use them that often. I have a large stash of yarn waiting to be used with them though and I really should use one of these sock patterns because in cold weather I am wearing warm socks, booties, slippers, etc. all the time.

        This looks like something I could do! I crochet, but this tool looks like an easy way to get "knitted items" without knitting!
