  • Size: Women + Men
  • Uses one skein of DK or Worsted Weight yarn -- perfect for that special skein of indie dyed superwash!
  • Written as a recipe, but detailed enough for an adventurous beginner
  • Perfect for those of you interested in using 9” circular needles
  • Can be knit plain or with colorwork. Great for using up stash yarn!

This simple and standard sock recipe at a larger gauge is for those of you who have been intimidated by sock knitting in the past. Both sizes are knit in either DK or worsted weight yarn. As long as you’re getting the gauge listed for one, you should be fine with either. I highly recommend finding a yarn with a percentage of nylon content to help these wear for longer, but a superwash wool is great too. I added a small color work section to add enough interest to get halfway through these socks without noticing it, but feel free to knit them without! If like me, double-pointed needles make you run for the hills, I highly suggest investing in a pair of 9” circular needles (I love ChiaoGoo the best), which is what this recipe is written for. They’re a little awkward to get the hang of at first, but once you do, get ready to see socks fly!
