Gully Wash Socks Overview

Fun-to-make socks building on the “Lifestyle Socks” - or, you don’t need to make a swatch to make socks that fit - theme.

Yarn: Blue Moon Fiber Arts
Socks That Rock, Lightweight, 360 yards

Needles/Method: Size 1, US
Using 2 circular needles, socks knit in the round

Gauge: Depends, but about 8-10 stitches to the inch.

What you know or will learn using this pattern:

  • A magical cast on
  • Making cables without a cable needle
  • Knitting socks that fit
  • An easier short row heel
  • A stretchy bind-off that will always wear comfortably

See the download button in the right column.

footnote: Experimenting with cables and this wonderful yarn, the cabling looked just like water rushing through gullies in the streams around where I grew up in the Texas hill country. The colorway that I used only reinforced the visual by being the color of the water in the washed gully.
