  1. Hi Staci. I want to thank you for your beautiful patterns and very helpful videos. I have learnt so much and gained so much confidence just by knitting your patterns.
    I am getting ready to knit this baby sock pattern for my soon to arrive niece/nephew. I don’t have DPNs in a smaller size. Can I use the magic loop method to knit up the socks? I do have size 2 circulars (40 inch) with me.
    Thanks again for all your help and guidance!

  2. Staci-I found my spirit when I learned to make these baby socks. I was so afraid of turning the heel and making a mess. Now I can’t stop.. I thank-you from the bottom of my heart. from, Mai

  3. pour vos patron ,sont-ils en francais je ne suis pas bilingue le patron des bas de bébé ,…. merci de me répondre ….

  4. Watching your video tutorial on double pointed needles, after you have divided the cast on stitches between the needles, and you begin to ” join in the round ” you begin with the Tail and the Working Yarn in the same spot . How does this happen ? When I begin to cast on, the Tail stays at the end, and the working yarn is on the opposite end of the needle ? I have seen this on several other DPN tutorial videos, also, and it is driving me crazy trying to figure out how the Tail and the Working Yarn are in the same stitch on the same needle. Thanks for any help you can provide.

    PS I am new to your website.

  5. Hi Mary – yes, I use the long-tail cast-on, which puts your working yarn and your tail at the same end of the needle. If you’re using the knitted cast-on (I’m guessing you are), your tail and working yarn will be at opposite ends.

    Here is my video on the long-tail:
