Love is an ever-expanding force; a web that connects us to each other and is always growing, bringing even more love into our lives. In my life, knitting and knitters are the perfect example of how love expands and grows. No matter how many knitters I know, I am always meeting more I love! Similarly, no matter how many items I have knit, or how many techniques I learn, I am always finding more to love about knitting!

This sock pattern is inspired by the ever expanding love of knitters and knitting I have in my life. The expanding web motif is simply radiant, just like love!

The Radiant Love socks are a fun way to combine 2 of your favorite colors or use up scraps that might not have enough yardage for a full pair of socks. These socks feature a fun slipped st motif, and through switching colors every round you create an expanding web of love up your foot. The design also features a solid toe, heel and cuff to highlight the web motif.

Grab 2 colors of yarn and start an addicting pair of socks to knit, and a striking pair of socks to wear!

To fit foot circumference of 6 (7, 8, 9)(10, 11)” 15 (17.5, 20, 22.5)(25, 27.5) cm
Foot circumference: 5 (6, 7, 8)(9, 10)“ 12.5 (15, 17.5, 20)(22.5, 25) cm
Leg Height: 3.5 (6.5, 7, 7.5)(8, 8.5)” 9 (16.5, 17.5, 19)(20, 21.5) cm

Fingering-weight sock yarn (approximately 400 yards per 100 grams) of 2 colors, with MC needing more yardage (60-70g for larger sizes).

If you swap the MC and CC for the 2nd sock, you will use 50% of each color.

Most sizes can be knit with a 100g of fingering weight yarn. The largest sizes, especially if knit for long feet, may require additional yardage.


  • I recommend pairing a solid or tonal colorway with a highly contrasting variegated, tonal, self-striping, or gradient!
  • For highest contrast, pick 2 colorways with no matching colors.
  • Swap the MC and CC on the 2nd sock as a fun way of mixing things up, and creating distinctly unique yet matching socks!

HEEL: Spacious OMG heel
