Need help w/socks

bluesky1August 13, 2009

Hi, I am knitting socks (actually my 2nd pair) but I have trouble with my stitches being reversed. My public side always seemed to be inside of the sock. Anytime I knit in the round this happens. What am I doing to cause this? Can anyone please help me?

You just turned your sock inside out when you started, and then turned started knitting that way. TINK back to the beginning of the row (because you're now actually working left to right not right to left), turn the sock so the right side is out facing you, and start knitting the correct way...once you have a few rows done it will be autaomatic, but at first it's easy to get the rows backwards/insideout.

I assume you are still on the leg part of the sock. As Vickey said, turn the sock so the outside is on the outside, then begin knitting clockwise around the needles. Clockwise.

Thanks. So the key is to start off knitting clockwise?

Yes, knit clockwise, just like you normally would.

Here is a good link to help you get started.

Keep us posted on how you are doing, Bluesky.

Well Vickey, clockwise wasn't how I "normally" did it. I knitted counterclockwise when starting socks, and I think that's what made the socks be inside out.

I was knitting counterclockwise like socks12345 said. For some reason I was knitting on the inside of my DPN. I'm on track again and working the leg of my 2nd sock. Thanks for your help.
