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.

I do a lot of regular socks. Have to give this a quick try. Might be good to teach my grandaughter

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!

this is the same pattern I found... if you scroll down the blue ones are just plain knit every round... very pretty... I'm heading to the toe of my second sock(heal in sock) ... I can't wait to finish my first pair of socks and then give this pattern a try... I hope we all post pictures when we are done... Ronie

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.
