Knit Your Socks on Straight

About the Author

Alice Curtis was the owner of The Pincushion Patch, a yarn shop in Little Falls, NY. She created sock patterns for knitting on two straight needles so she could teach her students the technique she developed.


Curtis, a seasoned knitting instructor, encountered a number of students who wanted to knit socks, but were intimidated by the double-pointed needles required to knit a small tube. This led to the development of her sock-knitting technique, which uses two straight needles to knit a flat sock, which is then seamed using a crochet hook. Though knitting socks flat isn't a brand-new technique, Curtis focuses on designing socks that are comfortable, wearable, and a step up from plain vanilla. The result? Attractive socks that knitters with a deep-seated fear of double-pointed needles can create. -VERDICT Curtis's technique isn't for everyone, but her addition to knitting literature will open up sock knitting to a new audience.
