Has anyone purchased and knit the Turkish Bed Socks by Churchmouse? I have the pattern but am having some problems. I've only knit one pair of socks (just took a class making socks on two circs and love making socks -- seems like everyone gets hooked). I'm stuck at the second half of part 5. Since the pattern is written for DPNs, I am also wondering how/where to convert to the two circs. Does anyone know of a KAL for this - I've looked but can't find anything current. Thanks for your help. Grace
Well I don't know a KAL,
but I knit regular socks on 2 short circs.
Just put the top on one needle and the botton on the second needle.
If you're working in-the-round, it shouldn't make any difference where you switch from dpns to circs, unless the pattern has the directions labeled by needle#. I won't even bother with those patterns.
If you go to Churchmouse Yarns & Teas web site they have a contact section and, I am sure, will help you work out your problem. They are very concerned about making sure that their patterns are easy to understand.
I can't help but thanks for the referral to the site. I will check that out. I do want to make socks one day.....:)
Thanks very much for your reply. Yes, the pattern does state needle # but I think I can just use stitch markers. The sock pattern I learned on used 2 circs. One for the bottom and one for the top. I'm just going to give it a try. I can always frog or tink - getting pretty good at both of them.
