This pattern is available for free.

This is a bit of a vague pattern, but should get you a pair of socks really, really quickly.

2 skeins of Misti Alpaca Chunky, each divided in half. (I use my scale.)

5mm DPNs, or whatever gets you about 3.5-4 stitches to the inch (go with 3.5 if you want a bigger sock, 4 if you’d like it a little smaller.

Start toe up with 8 stitches. (I use JMCO)
Increase 4 stitches (two at each side, separated by two stitches) every other round until you have 32 stitches.
Change colours, and knit until your work is the desired length. Mine are 19cm from tip of the toe til I begin the heel.

Change colours and work a short row heel on half the stitches, leaving 4 unwrapped in the middle.

Change colours, knit until the yarn runs out, or they are as long as you want them.

Change colours and work 1x1 rib until you like how things are. Cast off very loosely (I use a sewn bind off.) Repeat with the other half of the skeins.

Revel in the speed in which you just made a pair of socks.
