I’m running a very special sale! Existing full-priced and independent sock patterns will soon be re-released in a new format, with both toe-up and cuff down instructions, video tutorial links, clarified instructions and more, but until then you can enjoy 20% off their purchase (no coupon code necessary!)

Just a little bit of texture and lace makes for an engaging yet quick sock project out of this earthy Papiput Yarn. The delicate lace trellis reminds me of quiet days pottering in the garden, and looks great in a whole range of different colour options!


Small: EU 37 – 39 (approximately 19 cm {7 ½”} foot circumference)
Medium: EU 40 – 42 (approximately 22 cm {8 ¾”} foot circumference)
Large: EU 43 – 45 (approximately 25 cm {9 ¾”} foot circumference)


Papiput Yarn Tough Sock (75% Merino, 25% Nylon; 400 m {437 yds}/100 g)

1 skein Jepara colourway

We used approximately 76g (304 m {332 yds}) for sample Medium Size pair of socks (EU 40.5).


2.25mm (US 1), at least 80 cm (32”) length circular needle
2 removable stitch markers (optional during heel turn)
Tapestry needle
Tape measure
Sock blockers (optional)


34 stitches x 48 rounds = 10 cm (4”) in stockinette stitch on 2.25 mm needles, knit in the round, relaxed after blocking.


-Instructions are written for the Magic Loop method of working in the round, with a toe-up sock construction.

-Instructions are to be worked from the beginning to end of each round, unless instructions are specified for stitches on first needle of the round (N1; top of foot/front of leg), and second needle of the round (N2; sole of foot/back of leg), separately.

-We recommend using a toe-up cast on such as Judy’s Magic Cast On, and a stretchy bind off such as Jeny’s Surprisingly Stretchy Bind Off for beginning and finishing your socks. You will also need to know how to work short rows by wrapping stitches.

-Stitch counts are written for Small Size with {Medium,Large} Size stitch counts in brackets.

This pattern has been test knit, and instructions are provided in both written and charted format where relevant.
