Whippersnapper noun

These socks are available in two sizes (a 56-stitch version and a 64-stitch version). They’re marvelously unisex (and undeniably dapper, if I do say so myself!).

They are simple to make (you’ll have them memorized in no time), but the cabling is enough to keep you from getting bored to death some time around the middle of the foot. Even better, they’re mirrored, so your chances of finishing the second one are much better than usual (at least if your knitting projects go anything like how mine do…two of the exact same thing is hard!).

The socks in the picture were knit at 7 stitches per inch with Plucky Primo Aran. This sock works at a wide range of gauges. At 7 stitches per inch, you can make a sock that fits a foot or leg of 8.75 or 10 inches. At 8 stitches per inch, you can make a sock that fits a foot or leg of 7.75 or 8.75 inches. And at 9 stitches per inch, you can make a sock that fits a foot or leg of 6.75 or 7.75 inches.

As with any sock, be sure you’re working at a gauge that gives you a good, sturdy fabric in your chosen yarn.
