This pattern requires approximately 150 gr. of sock weight yarn. You may choose to use leftover sock yarn for the toes and heels (let your imagination be your guide!), if so, you may get by with 100 gr. of sock yarn - keep an eye on your yarn and leg length!

Toe up/short row heel construction.

This men’s sock design (as all are) was inspired, designed and knit for my wonderful husband! As a matter of fact, he told me that this pair is his all time favorite pair of socks!

This design has a different pattern on the instep/front and back of the leg….lots of fun! The cables on the front and back are nice, yet masculine….don’t forget your cable needle!

The pattern is both in written and chart form - knitter’s choice.

My designs are also available on individual blog posts (as seen below) where you can increase the size of the photos which may be useful in st. pattern definition or a very good look at the design. Or you may find pattern steps detailed; techniques explained; additional pattern notes and/or tips, etc., depending upon the pattern.
