I am looking for an EASY pattern for socks knitted from the top down using the magic loop. This will be my first attempt at socks and I just learned the Magic Loop so I need something pretty simple.

The one I have used to knit five pair of socks is fairly easy. It wasn't on the first pair when I was learning. I used the youtube videos on creating the heel, etc. to help. The pattern is available free at www.lionbrand.com. Search Men's Business Casual Socks. Don't let the Men's throw you off. I made 2 pair of men's socks for my son (using Magic Loop you can have the person try them on and then adjust when you start the toe decrease so the socks always fit in the length) and 3 pair of socks for my daughter.

Both Paton and Lion Brand have many free sock patterns. There are also free patterns inside the label of the Deborah Norville line of sock yarn.

The trickiest part of Magic Loop is the first few rounds where it wants to twist and it is easy to get messed up. I use the tail from the cast on as a guide. It is always hanging on the far right of the row at the beginning of the round, and the working yarn will be on the back needle.

Go to the link below this post and find the clover leaf pattern for socks. THis is a current workshop running and is a top down pattern on magic loop- while the pattern is a lace one it can be done without the lace, and any questions you have (that others have not already asjked can be asked). And it is written for those new to socks.
There is also a closed workshop for toe-up socks on magic loop if you want to try something else- again with an assumption that you can't knit socks (being closed simply means that you can't ask questions through the workshop anymore- but if you happen to have a question that is not already asked and answered in the workshop send me a PM and I will be happy to answer it.)

Thanks to both of you for your responses. I copied a pattern from the Debbie Norville site and now I downloaded the workshop pattern. I only have size 3 long circulars so I need to work a swatch and see what I get.
