How to knit two identical socks with Regia Pairfect by ARNE & CARLOS

Hello and welcome to our place.

We have a very special treat for you today.

This is something we've been looking forward to for such a long time! Our first REGIA Pairfect collection thatwe have designed in collaboration with REGIA and we're the only ones in theworld who can do this technology, because they've got a patent for that.

Isn't that marvelous, Arne? It's amazing! Anyway, we wanted to explain to you how to knit two socks, two identical socks with REGIA It's a very straightforward, very easy technology and the result is always going to be two pairs that look exactly the same, as you can see here See? They look exactly the same.

You don't have to think, just knit! This is a great thing for peoplethat are new beginners, intermediate knitters that don't like knitting with more than one color, and even advanced knitters if you just want to do a project really just mechanically, knitting a sock and you don't want tothink about the pattern.

The pattern is going to come up we made all by itself, because we made it for you.

So.

.

.

Join us and learn how to knit twoidentical socks! Aren't you excited? One of the same time, we don't do magic.

No, boring.

.

.

To knit two identical socks using theREGIA technology this is what you're going to do: You've got your ball of yarn and as youalready see there's some yellow on this ball of yarn.

The yellow thread isactually nothing that you knit with but it is a marker, it shows you where tostart And they've even made it so easy for you That they put this little thing that says Easy Start with a finger pointing at it It means that you take that and that's where you start so what you do is you pull out theyellow thread, the thread from inside the ball of yarn you keep pulling there's quite a lot of that hereapparently Uuuh.

.

.

Here it is.

(laugh) We've pulled out the threadand this is where we cut it basically so we don't need this it's just a marker so can you please? The scissors' behind you So I cut Give it to me! You've cut the yellow and now you cast on the stitches that you need to knit the sock.

We are actually, because the REGIA technology only works with a sock from the top down, you're going to cast on the 64 stitches, 16 on each needle, and then you're going to knit and purl the rib So cast on 16 each, and then we just do the rib Yeah, one knit, one purl.

Cast on, and westart the rib.

.

.

And then we explain further the technology.

See you when we finish the rib, OK? OK, so we've done the ribbing and the thing with Pairfect is that it even tells when you have the ribbing done and in this case it's because we have the light blue color and here you see I'vegot two stitches left on my needle and as you can see now the blue is becoming red so what I'll do is I'll just knit these two let's see this one is a purl, this is apurl, and then knit.

.

.

sorry and because the color changed it's nowtime to start knitting the sock If you want you can do the rib with one needle and then change to bigger one size bigger for the sock em but you don'thave to this look good anyway yeah So basically you start the stockinette, inthe change of color and you just keep knitting OK, so we fast-forward and now we aremore or less here knitting the stockinette this is all being coming out by itself, we haven't done anything other than knitted and knitted and knitted, on the round so basically as you can see there's time for a new color change and it's going back to blue and this means that we get to knit the heel now so you startknitting the heel and it's going to be a short row heel that we're going to showyou in another episode Now we're just explaining the technology of Pairfect so the heel we'll see separately But anyway you knit a short roll heel and after that you start shaping your foot.

So let's come back in a minute when we've done that.

So, here we are.

We've actually done quite a bit after the heel: here's the heel and the foot and this is where Pairfect is so clever.

You see the top down means that when you start from the top and you knit to the heel this is always going to be the same size regardless of your foot size and after you do the heel, which is in the blue color, then you start doing your foot and for your foot you can stop wherever you need to stop depending on your size It's pretty brilliant the way it is.

So you just keep knitting, and knitting andknitting and knitting until, yeah You see, that “Oh, OK – this is my size” and then you start decreasing You decrease on both sides – Arne will show you that, quickly So, you have to decrease: we get the decreasing on the correct side, according to the foot, or the heel.

So the decreasing will be on this side and on this side, because the heel is pointing in this direction And we just knit.

We end this needle withknit two together and one, and knit one.

Knit two together, knit one.

.

.

Then on the next needle we start with knit one.

.

.

And we knit two together.

.

.

Then we knit the rest of the needle and then we do the same on the two next needles.

Easy.

.

.

Then you decrease on every second round So here is the ready-made sock.

Basicallyas you can see this is a really large foot, and it's definitely not my sizeit's the biggest mens style.

It's someone else's foot, yeah – exactly.

But anyway, if it would have been my sizeI would have probably stopped, started decreasing around here andit would have been knitted until more or less there So, see that's the really cool thing: if yourfoot is smaller, the toe is going to be, the color the solid blue color ofyour toe is going to be smaller; if you have a bigger foot, then this is going to be longer So basically we finished our first sock: I've sewn in the toe and I've cut the yarn.

And, this is the ball that I was knitting with.

As you can see there is a little bit left over of the blue yarn and that doesn't really matter:what you do now is you pull, and you pull.

.

.

And you pull, and pull.

.

(and you can pull forever.

.

.

) You can pull forever and ever.

.

.

But at one point, depending on the size of your foot.

.

.

Eventually.

.

.

(laugh) eventually.

.

.

There should be some yellow coming here And the yellow marks the beginning (laugh) Wow, there! There, you see? I pulled it out and suddenly I didn't even see the yellow So you see the yellow is there so, if you do me the honors of cutting that I have to cut it on the same place.

.

.

No, that's the end.

That's the end of the old sock Yeah, oh! So it doesn't matter.

So you see here, on the floor, we've got the end of the old sock That's not nice, the way you do it.

.

.

Well you might want to recycle thisinto a Barbie sweater or something but I want to knit a second sock, as it issupposed to be two; so you see here we've got the yellow thread, and then once you start pulling again we are going to get.

.

.

You get yellow for your Barbie sweater! We're going to get blue.

.

.

should be coming up any minute now.

.

.

There it is! And this is the second sock;so, you take it, you cut it and now we can and now we can knit sock number two! Doing it exactly the same way.

Casting on 64 stitches, knitting the ribdown when the color changes (I want it looking the same so measure it.

) (good) So when the color changes you do the stockinette again, the short row heel, the foot, finish the foot and you'll have two identical pairs.

Don't worry about the tension, don'tworry about anything This is all very engineered, veryhigh-tech: I mean we're living in 2016! Come on! The machines have thought about this foryou, there's no need to worry.

You will get two identical socks no matter what you do, as long as you cut the yellow thread – remember that.

The yellow thread has nothing to do with the sock It's just a marker to show you where youstop, and when you start.

So on that note, we've got loads of socks on our way as you can see, we've prepared many many.

We've also got a great line of colours coming up.

Unfortunately we don't have all thecolours here but here's a picture for you, so that you can see the different stocksthat we've done Yeah, we're very excited about Pairfect, hopefully we will do more if this is a success I have to fix this, because this can be used for something Well, yeah.

But that's the part of the toethat you didn't need.

OK.

So anyway, this is Pairfect technology.

I hope this made sense And it's so easy! Actually, they look good! Well, they're our designs.

.

.

Obviously, they're amazing! Because we designed then ourselves.

.

.

And they are going to be amazing because you are going to be able to knit this, no problem.

So I hope you'll enjoy it And we do the short roll heel on the next time Next time, we're going show you how to do the short row heel that you need to do for this pattern and we're posting a pattern; the Pairfect pattern is posted already on our website So you can just go in and get it off of there.

Go get your Pairfect yarn, and start knitting two identical socks.

Thank you! You're welcome (laugh).
