Technical Tuesday: Without Holes

When you finish a pair of hand knit socks, it is a horrible feeling to notice a hole worn into them after the usual wear and tear. Usually most sources I have cared to look up, suggest using The Yarn Harlot’s style of darning; which involved holding the socks in question over a garbage can and saying ‘darn’ before dropping them in. BUT if you don’t have a significant stash of hand knit socks or there is a special pair you wish to darn, I thought I would make this post for you.

A great intro for sock darning from knit picks! This video was just a brief overview for their succession of videos. Below are the videos in order!

Swiss Darning or duplicate stitch

The Accidental Hole

Patching!

Another amazing resource I found was a blog post by the Twist Collective entitled Darn it All!
