You may be asking why it is magical, I’ll tell you:

  • No Second Sock Syndrome.
  • First and foremost, when you’re done, you.are.done.
  • No fiddly double point needles or 2 circulars.
  • You can manipulate the yarn to make them match.
  • There is no Kitchener Stitch because they are toe-up.
  • No picking up stitches for the gusset.
  • You can knit the leg as long as your yarn yardage allows, less guesswork and less leftover yarn.

Sizes are based on shoe sizes: women’s 6-9 (women’s 9-11/men’s 8.5-10, women’s 10-12/men’s 10.5/12) and based on foot circumference (around middle of foot) of 8 (9, 10.5)”.

Fingering Weight Yarn: 350+ yards (larger size and customization for longer foot/leg lengths will require more yardage), US #1-2, 40” circular needle, stitch markers, tapestry needle. Yarn used in picture: Zen Yarn Garden Serenity 20, 70% superwash merino, 20% cashmere, 10% nylon, 400 yards, colorway: Bird of Paradise.
