I love the Jeeves and Wooster books by P.G. Wodehouse. In many of the stories, Bertie Wooster has decided that some outrageous article of clothing is the hottest fashion trend and begins to wear it, much to the dismay of the much more tasteful and savvy sensibilities of his valet, Jeeves. In one story, Bertie starts to wear purple socks, and thus begins another “battle”. If you want to truly replicate Bertie’s fashion faux pas, knit these socks with purple yarn!

This sock is the mystery sock for January-February 2016 in the Solid Socks group.

Yarn requirements: one skein of standard sock-weight yarn (440 yds/100 gms) will be sufficient for most sizes. If you have very large feet, you might need 150 gms.

This sock is written for four different sizes, which should be adequate for any adult foot.

This download is now available as one part. Choose the option that is simply called “Bertie Wooster’s Faux Pas”. I have left the other versions because they contain more written directions; the condensed version is worked from charts.
