How to Loom Knit a Basic Sock to Fit Anyone

Ever wanted not to hunt down a pattern in a specific size of foot. Maybe even want to make a sock fit a specific persons foot. Well here is a basic guide. 


1. Trace the persons foot out in card paper if possible, a thick paper makes this easier.
2. Cut outline out.
3. Take your KB sock loom and adjust the marker to fit your cutout at the widest point. (This should be the ball of the foot.)
4. EW Cast On, then flat knit for 20 rows, pull your cast on loops back onto the pegs creating a small cuff area. 
5. Then knit to the desired length of the cuff the person prefers. At this point make notes how many rows it took so you can know for the next sock.
6. Work your heel area by taking your cut out and placing the heel area up to the length wise section. Decide how many times you will need to wrap and turn before you hit the amount of pegs that the will not be wrapped and turned to be your heel. (See video for help)
7. Then work how ever many rows you will need to have to encompass the cut out length. (I will be adding later how to customize a toe area) 
8. Cast off using the method in the video, or if you feel comfortable with it the kitchener stitch. 
Don't forget to take notes on each section how many rows you have done for easier help in making the other sock.

  1. My feet are different from most, one foot is only half there so store socks have to be folded at the end as are to long. Plan to try your tracing method and hope I can actually make a pair to fit my so bought board and shall begin and see what happens
