These socks, named after my dear canine companion, Roxy Mae, are suitable for knitters of all skill levels. The textured stitch pattern is easily memorized, making this a perfect project for knit night or when you’re on the go.

Ideal for self-striping yarns, the stitch pattern also works equally well for highly variegated and semi-solid colorways.

Pattern includes charted and written instructions for both fingering weight and sport/DK weight yarn. Written as a cuff down pattern, the stitch pattern can be easily reversed for toe up construction.

Needle size suggested: US 1 (fingering weight) and US 3 (sport/DK weight)

Techniques used:

  • Knitting in the round
  • Knit/Purl
  • Decreases (K2tog, SSK)
  • Picking up stitches
  • Grafting/Kitchener Stitch
