Description These are most definitely the fastest socks I’ve ever knit! They are also comfy and perfect for fall weather! This is a basic shorty sock recipe for DK weight yarn, using a heel flap and gusset.

Designer Lauren Slagle

Supplies Needed

1 skein of USA DK

1 skein on Lil Lolo USA DK (mini-skein)

This pattern is written so you don’t cut your yarn for the heel flap, one less end to weave in if you use 2 colors. It’s pretty cool! So I encourage you to use 2 colors in your socks for this pattern.

The pattern includes written instructions and video tutorials.
