Socks made with worsted weight 100% wool are perfect for wearing in rubber boots and work boots. Growing up in a farming and fishing community wool socks were a necessity, but the rustic wools were relatively itchy. Fleece & Harmony’s beautiful yarn is much softer, allowing knitters to make a soft and squishy worsted sock. Their amazing colours gave me so many options for easily altering the basic top down heel flap sock construction with fun colour work thus providing many beautiful design options. Worsted weight yarn is a great way for beginners start knitting socks.

These socks are knitted top down on either circular or double-pointed needles.

Most sizes will take one skein of Fleece and Harmony Signature yarn. Adult L & XL take a bit more (doing contrast heels and toes in a contrasting colour is perfect for them).

3.0 mm (US 2.5) double pointed ends or circular needles of at least 23 cm (9”).
3.5 mm (US 4) double pointed ends or circular needles of at least 23 cm (9”).
