Instant Coffee Socks

Available on Etsy & on Payhip


These socks were inspired by the look and concept of instant coffee.

The look: the slipped stitch pattern reminds me of granules of instant coffee. The concept: these socks are easy and quick to make, just like instant coffee.

So grab your instant coffee, your 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, knit through the back loop (ktbl), knit two together (k2tog), slipping stitches, slip slip knit (ssk), M1R, M1L, and wrap and turns (W+T). Instructions for all these techniques are included in the pattern. In addition, we have a video tutorial for the shadow wrap technique of W+T for short rows.

This pattern includes written instructions for 48 stitch, 52 stitch, and 60 stitch socks.

Huge thanks to my amazing test knitters: Andrea (angeiship), Ann (roocmc), GeorgeAnne (Stitchingplaza), Kimberly (Napiersknits), Kirsis (KirsiS), Rhonda (DuellingNeedles), & Tracy (tmangil)! ❤
