This is a recipe for the most basic of basic knit socks. It’s something that I’ve come up with over years of making socks. I use it as a basis for making socks of every size, color and shape. Feel free to modify it, change it, and make it your own. With just a little bit of tweaking you can use my recipe to make any socks that you would ever want. Enjoy!

The gauge and needle size are just a suggestion. Since this is a recipe, it can easily be modified to the needle/yarn combination that you like best. One large skein of yarn (about 100g) is plenty to make a standard adult pair of socks.
