Over the years that I’ve been knitting socks, I only knitted a few pairs of toe up socks. About two weeks ago Mondays girls asked if I could teach them how to knit toe up socks. While in the preparations for this week’s teaching I uploaded the Turkish cast-on knitting tutorial to my YouTube channel.
Last Friday I cast on a new pair of toe up socks. I wanted to make sure I’m totally hands on with everything included in this sock knitting method. And gosh I got totally hooked and couldn’t get my hands off my knitting project for the entire weekend.
I used the Turkish cast-on method to start with and it reminded me how smart and simple this cast-on method is. I shared a picture on my Instagram stories and got so many requests to share a tutorial for it.
Turkish Cast-On knitting tutorial
On Sunday I recorded my Turkish cast-on tutorials and edited it on Monday after teaching the first toe up class of the week. My Turkish cast-on knitting tutorial went live on Wednesday morning. I’m so excited because now you can also learn with me how to cast on your toe up socks, whenever you’re ready.
Teaching toe up socks
A few days before we met, I sent a text message to my weekly knitters explaining about our upcoming toe up class. I sent them a list of ‘what you need’ so they can get ready for our next meeting. This week, on both the Mondays club and the Knit night club we started knitting toe up socks.
Here’s where I am now. Just about to start knitting the heel on my second sock.So, in case you were writing to me, asking for the Turkish cast-on knitting tutorial… OR If you just want to learn it with me… This video is now available and will be available for you, whenever you are ready. I made it so it is good for you even if you are a beginner. Thank you so much for watching and if you liked my video please don’t forget to share, like and subscribe, it’ll help me A lot, xxMo

You are the best! I finished watching your tutorial and you make me think that I can do this. Your knitting and crocheting are so inspirational, and you are the best mentor! XO

Mo, that was a great tutorial and I want to do socks with you!!! I also love the yarn. Can you tell us what yarn it is, please? I would like to do two socks at once and now I would like to understand how you do that. Would you be up to showing that, also? I look forward to your emails and inspiration. P.S. I have tried to get that Ikea basket, Vardance, but they are no longer available here. I think that would be a great project if you could do a divided yarn basket like that (I made your purse, something along that stitch to make it).
I am just knitting my first sock, I’m doing it cuff down for no other reason than that’s in the pattern I’m using, but I’m now ready to do the heel and feeling very initmidated!

Hi Jill, my go to socks are cuff down. I really hope to add a full tutorial to my YouTube channel in the future but I suggest that you look on heel tutorials on YouTube, you might find it helpful. It’s not that complicated just watch a few tutorials and you’ll get the idea.
