Cast On for Two Circular Needles
Top Down top
Knitting two socks simultaneously on two circular needles has gained popularity recently. The idea of having both socks completed at the same time is very appealing!
Your circular needles should be 16-24 inches long, depending on your personal preference. Once stitches are cast on, heel stitches always remain on needle 1 and instep stitches always remain on needle 2. It helps if the needles are different colors .
When the stitches of a needle are at rest, they are moved to the flexible portion of the needle. This provides the knitter with the the "give" necessary to knit in the round.
