Why Would You Ever Want to Pay For Knitting and Crochet Patterns or Lessons When You Can Get All That for Free?
Read this:
 

We have some of the most skilled knitters and crocheters in the world posting patterns and techniques like you've never seen before. And some of them only post on our website and nowhere else, so you won't find these patterns anywhere else no matter how much time you spend searching! So keep reading.

If you are a beginner, intermediate, advanced, or a professional knitter or crocheter, then the benefits of signing up for our free weekly knitting e-mail newsletter are:

• We cover hand knitting, machine knitting, and crochet.

• Each week you'll be receiving new tips and techniques.

• Daily, you'll be receiving a knitting/crochet forum digest with the latest pictures, discussions and patterns.

• If you ever have a question or need help, you can always ask, and we'll cover your question in the following newsletter issue.

• Discover the fastest way to knit (and to crochet) a sock... while keeping the perfect heel and making sure the sock fits (not many knitters know this).

• Find out how to figure out how much yarn you need for a pattern if the pattern doesn't specify it (works for any project, a real life-saver sometimes).

• Learn how to pick up a dropped stitch, even from several rows below. It happens to absolutely everyone at some point. But don't worry, there exists a really simple fix.

• And if you ever run out of yarn, find out how to join any yarn in the middle of any project.

• If you can't find the pattern that you need, or if you don't know which pattern would be most appropriate for a specific project, then you can ask our other users to help you figure it out. We even have a dedicated "Pattern Requests" section on our website that's all about finding new patterns.

• The same goes for any problems and questions about specific techniques. We have experienced users who are always helping those in need with just the right advice.

Note to crocheters: We cover both knitting and crochet on our website. The name Knitting Paradise is just a matter of history of how this website was started. These days, close to 50% of content on our forum is about crochet. So it doesn't matter if you primarily knit or crochet (or if you only crochet), you'll still find just as many patterns, tips, and tutorials that are relevant to your specific interests.

• And of course, as I said it's all completely FREE!

• Let me repeat that. Since for some reason a lot of people contact us asking if the membership is really free: we are a social website for knitters and crocheters, so we don't sell anything, and we don't charge any fees. It's as simple as that.

Enter your name and e-mail address below, and you'll be instantly added to our knitting mailing list distribution. Right away, you'll get access to more knitting-related material (pictures, patterns, tips) than contained in all knitting books and magazines you could ever buy. And you'll get all that for free.

You'll be able to talk and share ideas with more knitters than you could meet if you attended all the largest trade shows. And you'll be able to do all that without leaving your house!

Don't delay! Join the best knitting and crochet community on the Internet.

I had been looking for one too and after a lengthy internet search found a free one. I have attached the pattern in a PDF. Here is a link to the pattern site (the address is at the bottom of the PDF as well) if you can't open the attachment

I have not found one for an adult but was going to play around with this to adapt for larger feet.

Since I haven't had the patience to learn to use the dpn's, I have been making tube socks for a long time. However, these are how I make them, and everyone loves them!
Size 8 straight needles
CO 32
k2,p2 to desired length, I usually go 18 to 21 inches, depending on how large the foot is!
My husband needed 27 inches!
If you are making them for younger children, or toddlers, I CO 28 inches.
Then sew up the sides and wahlah--you have your tube socks!!

Purplemuse ~ Thank you so much for this site. It's full of great links. I found the most adorable crocheted sandals at chocolatemintsinajar.com. I will explore some more of them later when I'm supposed to be cleaning up this place :roll:
Have a happy day!

My favorite tube sock is called the Sausage Socks from THE WORKBASKET January 1980 issue. I goggled it and found the exact pattern at http://www.craftown.com/knit/knit32.htm I've made these for adults and they are quite fun. For Men's size I cast on 56 stitches and 52 stitches for Women's size. Hope you find a pattern that you like. Sue
Women's size

Almost any sock pattern, toe-up or top-down, can be used for tube socks. Simply delete the instructions for the heel and the turnings, and continue to knit upward/downward until you get the length of the foot to be about 4 inches longer than the initial foot+ankle+ribbing ... I've done it for myself and it works great.
