Foot circumferences are measured around the ball of the foot at the widest point and should be used to choose your sizing. Foot lengths are measured from the tip of the toes to centre of back of the heel, and are to be used as a general guide only. For the best fit possible, check all measurements given in the pattern by trying the socks on the intended wearer.

Circus Tonic Handmade Revelry Sock (80% Merino, 20% Nylon; 374m {409yds}/100g), 1 skein Marsh Sandpiper (tan) or Rosy Starling (pink) colourway, OR 100g fingering weight sock yarn

Samples used approximately 64g (240m {262yds}) for Small Size pair of socks (women’s EU 39/US 8 ½), and 78g (292m {319yds}) for Medium Size pair of socks (women’s EU 41/US 9 ½). Please note that the yardage requirements will vary depending on the heel option, sock circumference, foot and leg length, and any differences in gauge.

–2.25mm (US 1) and 2.75mm (US 2), at least 80cm (32”) length circular needles for working Magic Loop method, double-pointed needles or short 23cm (9”) circular needles, OR size to obtain gauge and a needle size larger
–3 removable stitch markers (2 optional during heel turn {toe-up version}, or for using a different style of needle/method of working in the round, and 1 optional during Leg Pattern Section)
–Tapestry needle
–Tape measure
–Sock blockers (optional)

33 stitches x 48 rounds = 10cm (4”) in stockinette stitch, knit in the round and relaxed after blocking.

Stockinette stitch = knit every round

-This pattern is written for both toe-up and cuff down sock construction methods. A compiled pdf with both methods together in the one document is available to download, as well as separated toe-up and cuff down pdfs for your convenience.

-Instructions are written for the Magic Loop method of working in the round with a long circular needle. They are to be worked from the beginning to end of each round unless specified for stitches on first needle (N1; front of leg/top of foot), and second needle (N2; back of leg/sole of foot), separately. If you are using double-pointed needles or a short circular needle, use markers as needed to designate between what will be the front and back halves of the sock.

-You have the option of working either a slip stitch heel flap with gusset or a short row heel for these socks. The heel flap and gusset option is great for feet with a high instep, or for those who want a decorative heel, whereas a short row heel is shallower and uses less yarn. You will need to know how to work short rows by wrapping and turning for both options.
