Cylinder Needles for Circular Sock Knitting Machines
The Gearhart and Clearfield machines took a variety of needle gauges dependent on the cylinder slots. Please make sure you know which gauge of needle you need to fit the cylinder you are ordering for. Despite some of the information contained on popular websites, our research indicates conflicting data which shows that 4 sizes of cylinder (54, 60, 72, 80 slot) could have been manufactured for 12 gauge OR other gauge needle sizes, so please be sure of what you need. Sock machine needles are not returnable.

JOY OF SOX INSTRUCTIONAL VIDEOS FOR SOCK MACHINE USERS!Here are some wonderful videos (in VHS format) to help you learn to use your circular sock knitting machine. Videos are $18 each plus shipping, and can be ordered by using our secure order page online, or by calling to place your order.
Joy of Sox #1 - Mock rib hemtop sock by John Loeffelholz. Sorry, sold out: The VHS video starts off by showing you how to thread the CSM and cast on. It proceeds to go through, step-by-step, each phase of making a hemmed top sock, including hanging the hem, turning heels and toes, and doing the Kitchener stitch at the end to close the toe. This technique does not require using a ribber. Although it was filmed using a Legare, the video could easily be used to make socks on Auto Knitter, Gearhart, and other sock knitting machines with minor differences in the procedures. Sorry, sold out
Joy of Sox #2 Mittens Sorry, sold out by John Loeffelholz. This VHS video takes you through the process of making a mitten on your circular sock machine. You'll be amazed at the results. After the mitten is made, you learn how to close the thumb and Kitchener across the tip of the mitten. This video assumes that you have basic sock knitting machine skills and does not show any setup. These mittens were made using a mock rib and a hanged hem on the cuff. No ribber is needed to make these spectacular mittens. The video was shot using an Auto Knitter but the techniques shown could be used on almost any brand of machine. Sorry, sold out
