SockCalc is a small, handy application for the sock knitter on-the-go. SockCalc will calculate knitting instructions for a basic kneesock from your individual measurements - either top-down or toe up.

It will help combat second-sock syndrome by helping you remember details of the first sock and keeping instructions for your socks-in-progress with you at all times.

For version 1.7 New interface - better controls, fixed gauge control issue, cleaner colors.

Three new features - a notes section to type in anything you like, the ability to attach a photo of your yarn and needles or finished socks, and settings to store your measurement unit and knit direction preferences.

Sockcalc now has public issue tracking at GitHub - see the support URL. You can also still email with questions or suggestions

Doesn’t account for 10% decrease for fit

The app is ok but, for socks to fit snugly there should be about a 10% decrease in the amount of stitches based on your gauge. This app doesn’t account for that.

Half works

This is fine for generating plain sock patterns, but any notes you write in the note section aren't saved when you exit the app. Just a warning if you plan on using this app.

Love it!

I love this app! It's great to be able to have my family's measurements all in one place. I like the fact that you can change the gauge for whatever yarn and needles you are using. It is true though that it seems tat you can only make knee hi's, but I'm trying to use the basic pattern and just tweak it a bit. I would love to see an option to make any length of socks seeing as how the measurements are there already. I was a little disappointed tat you couldn't make calf, or ankle socks. Maybe a future update? It's the only reason for four stars instead of 5! It is well worth the $0.99 for this one.
