Knitted Sock Instructions

I have had many people ask me for help knitting socks.  I am always happy to help, happy to share my knowledge.  I decided to take pictures and see if I can write down my process so that everyone can understand, not just those that can read a pattern, so I hope this helps.




Knitting Socks #1- Ribbing and body of the sock

Knitting Socks #2- Finishing the body and starting the heel flap

Knitting Socks #3- Knitting the heel flap

Knitting Socks #4- The heel cup

Knitting Socks #5- Adding stitches for the gusset

Knitting Socks #6- Knitting the gusset

Knitting Socks #7 - Knitting the foot

Knitting Socks #8 -Decreasing for the Toe and Binding Off.

Alterations for Men's Socks - These are notes I took when I made socks for my husband, as a reference for myself when making more men's socks, the fit is just so different for men.  Hope it helps.
