Sock Repair: Knitted Patch

May 26, 2021 Off By admin

In this video, Cynthia demonstrates how to create a knitted patch for a hole in your knitting. This is her favourite method of darning socks when the fabric of the knitting has worn through. If you’d like to try this method, you’ll need a set of double pointed needles (just two) in a size smaller than the ones used to knit the sock, a wool needle, and a pair of scissors. Oh, and something with a hole in it!

This video replaces an older one. We like to think of it as the new and improved version. When we replace a video, we also lose all the previous comments, so we’d like to say thank you to all those who watched the original (there were 16.6K views). And thank you to all who watch now. We hope you find this technique helpful!
