From the five different sizes, to the three different cuffs, and two different heels, these socks are completely customizable to suit your feet AND your yarn! This versatile pattern was written to accommodate self striping yarns, but would work fabulously with any sock yarn!

This sock would make a great first sock for those ready to take the plunge into sock knitting! If you can work in the round, knit, purl, increase, decrease, and pick up stitches, you can do this!
The pattern is worked cuff down, with options for a heel flap and gusset, and a German short row heel! Choose your favourite heel, and cast on!

This pattern also includes directions for how to make contrast heels/toes/cuffs.


Skill Level: Easy - Intermediate (this is an easy sock, but would require some knitting proficiency.)

Craft: Knitting

Skills required: Knitting in the round, increasing, decreasing, slipped stitches, picking up stitches, kitchener stitch, double pointed needles or magic loop.

Requires: one 100g skein of your favourite sock yarn!
Optional: one 20g mini skein of a contrasting colour!

Sample uses: Cinnabar Pink Self Striping Sock Yarn in β€œFall into Autumn”

Like any of my patterns, you can use any sock yarn that fits your style and budget! Need help finding a suitable yarn? Check out my Tips and Tricks for yarn substitution!

This pattern contains five sizes. Finished socks will fit most teen - adult feet.

If you’re interested in increasing the width of the calf, I have a few suggestions:

  • Use a stretchy cast on like the Twisted German cast on
  • Because this is a vanilla sock, you can easily cast on more stitches to make a wider leg. If you do add more stitches, I would suggest decreasing by 2 stitches every other row as you approach the ankle, prior to starting the heel, until you reach your preferred stitch count for the foot.
