First, we drink the coffee. Then, we knit the socks.

Inspired by the texture, scent, and overwhelming wonder of fresh roasted Espresso beans, this sock will be almost as nice as that first morning cup of coffee. It features simple lace on the front and back, and a textured heel flap for added zing. So brew up a cup, and grab your needles, these are the perfect sock for all the over-caffeinated knitters out there.

Coffee Bean Socks are not one of the patterns from the Lattes & Llamas Society of Caffeinated Knitters (SOCK) club, which you can learn more about HERE. This pattern might help you fill the void while you wait for your next package, or just want to knit socks without joining a club off coffee chugging yarn nerds. ;)

Make sure to share your projects on Instagram and tag them #coffeebeansocks so we can all ooh and aah!

Recommended Yarn: 1 ball (100g) Lattes & Llamas Adventure Yarn. Sample is knit in color “Coffee or Death”.

Needles: US1 36” or larger circular needles for working in Magic Loop, or size needed to obtain gauge. If preferred, DPNs can be substituted for circular needles.

Notions: Stitch markers and a tapestry needle to weave in ends.

Gauge: 30 stitches and 40 rows = 4” in stockinette. Note that you will likely be casting on more stitches than you are used to at this gauge. That is to compensate for the ribbing down the back of the socks which give them a stretchy, comfortable fit.

Sizes: S(M, L) Sample is knit in Medium, and modeled on a size US8 women’s foot.
