I love the look of a cup of Espresso Macchiato. The crisp, clean lines with the textured foam on top was the inspiration for this pattern.

For these socks, I have replicated the look of an Espresso Macchiato using a self-striping yarn with a textured pattern for the foam alternated with rows of stockinette stitch.

This pattern will take on a different look depending on the number of colours and the width of the stripes in your self-striping yarn.

So grab your Espresso Macchiato, 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 both toe-up and cuff down instructions.

Judy’s Magic Cast On and Jeny’s Surprisingly Stretchy Bind Off are used in this pattern for the toe-up sock. German Twisted Cast-On and Kitchener stitch is used in this pattern for the cuff down sock.

The knitter needs to be comfortable with the following techniques: knit, purl, ktbl, k2tog, ssk, yo, M1R, M1L, & 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.
