Even though father’s day has only been an official holiday in America since Richard Nixon made it so in 1972, there is no shortage of silly junk marketed as appropriate gifts for pop. Making your dad hand-knit socks lets him know he’s worth the time, effort and yarn invested. It says you care enough about him to not get him a tie with a golf tee motif.

Because of the cables, this pattern uses more yarn than a plain sock.


Foot circumference:
7 (8, 9, 10) inches 17.5 (20, 23, 25.5 cm) unstretched. Will stretch to fit 8 (9, 10, 11) inches 20 (23, 25.5, 28 cm).

NOTE: Pattern was updated on July 3rd, 2010. Look for V.2 (version 2) at the bottom of the pattern. If you are using an older version there was an error in the heel charts for sizes 3 and 4. Be sure to use the latest version!
