This is a nice quick, and easy sock that is perfect for the men in your life or for the women who want a relatively plain sock. The design is a combination of simple knit and purl stitches over an easy to remember six round repeat which produces a nicely textured design.

The pattern includes both written and charted instructions.

The pattern is written for three sizes: Small (60 stitches OR 7.5 inch foot circumference), medium (68 stitches OR 8.5 inch foot circumference), and large (76 stitches OR 9.5 inch foot circumference)

Yarn: Fingering weight yarn (100 grams)

Needles and Notions:

  • 2.25mm (US size 1) circular needle or size necessary to achieve gauge. The pattern is written for magic loop but can easily be done using double point needles - just adjust your stitches accordingly
  • Tapestry (darning) needle
  • Stitch markers (if desired)
