Chai Latte Socks

Available on Etsy & on Payhip


The Chai Latte, while not technically coffee, is something that’s available in most coffeeshops. It is a blend of black tea, spices, and herbs.

For these socks, I have replicated the look of the spices used in a Chai Latte using slipped stitches.

This pattern will take on a different look depending on the width of the stripes in your self-striping yarn as you alternate the pattern rows every time your yarn changes colours.

So grab your Chai Latte, your self-striping yarn, and your needles and cast on your socks. Happy Knitting!


These socks are knit using the magic loop method (although the purchaser could easily adapt it for two circulars or double points).

This pattern includes toe-up and cuff-down instructions.

The socks are knit using Judy’s Magic Cast-On, ending with Jeny’s Surprisingly Stretchy Bind-Off, or using the German Twisted Cast-On, ending with Kitchener stitch.

The knitter needs to be comfortable with the following techniques: knit, purl, knit two together (k2tog), knit through the back loop (ktbl), M1L, M1R, slipped stitches, slip slip knit (SSK), and wrap and turns (W+T). Instructions for all these techniques are included in the pattern. In addition, a video tutorial for the shadow wrap technique of W+T for short rows has been recorded by the designer.

This pattern includes instructions in both written and chart forms for 56 stitch, 64 stitch, and 72 stitch socks.
