I was not the one who asked for the pattern, but I was looking for a way to make slipper sox for H and I think this will work. I will just use a heavy weight yarn, or bulky. Thanks!

Here is a round toe pattern that is an alternative for the kitchener stitch toe closure. (You will have to switch to dpns for this part unless you can manoever your circular needle well enough and use 4 markers to place them evenly along the stitches.) You can absolutely try on the sock as you knit but just make sure you have elastics or something around the ends of the needles so the stitches dont slip off.

Round Toe on DPNs:
When there are 2" less than desired total length of foot from back of heel towards the toe you will do the following:

Divide the stitches onto 4 DP needles, starting from the center of the sole of the sock.....
Begin shaping:
Round 1: (Knit to last 2 sts on needle, K2 tog) each needle
Round 2: Knit all sts
Repeat these two rounds 7 MORE times .
There is now 1 stitch less on each needle after each knit two together round.

K2 tog at the end of each needle EVERY round until 2 sts remain on each needle.
Cut yarn, leaving a 5" tail, thread through small tapestry needle and sew around through all 8 sts, pull taught, and push needle through center to wrong side and secure.

You go for it, and please, do post back and let me know how the pattern worked for you and what sort of alterations/pattern tweaks you needed to do to knit this on the knitting machine. I have not done anything on a knitting machine and so I am really interested in this. My Mom has made socks on a knitting machine (flat bed) and those were with heel flaps. I know that there a lot of knitters who use knitting machines and this would be of great interest to so many knitters! Zoe :D

Thank you for the tube sock pattern !!!
I have been wanting to try socks and I bought a book at Hobby Lobby and returned it -- it was way too complex.
Then I found in my very small sock yarn stash, a small booklet on how to do socks. But this pattern is a great way to start and I am excited over the the idea of Christmas gifts !!! This why I love this site :-)
Thank you again.
