Soft comfortable socks designed with the men in your life in mind. The Comfort Socks Set presents coordinated designs for a set of socks - one pair for lounging comfort and one for everyday out-and-about wear.

At-home Comfort socks (shown to left in photo) have a dressy band of Norwegian Braid and Bohus Pearls on the leg. The companion On-the-go Comfort socks (right) have a coordinating single Norwegian Braid. On both socks, the comfy ribbing is carried down the foot, ending with a simple toe closure (no Kitchener stitch!)

The main yarn used for At-home Comfort is a luxury fiber. This pair of socks in the set is not intended to be a hard-wearing or “work” sock, but rather a soft comfortable sock for relaxation or to provide warmth for the ailing. The main yarn for On-the-go Comfort is a sturdier practical yarn for enhanced wear. The main yarn in each pair is used as the accent yarn in the other pair.

Men’s S(M,L,XL). Sport/DK weight yarn as follows - Luxury yarn (L): 275(315,365,420) yards for main yarn in At-home and 6 yards for accent yarn in On-the-go. Practical yarn (P): 285(325,375,430) yards for main yarn in On-the-go and 30 yards for accent yarn in At-home. US 2 needles or size to get gauge of 6½ stitches/inch; set of needles one size larger. Written stitch instructions.

Socks shown in Haneke Exotics baby alpaca/linen/merino color burgundy and Heirloom Easycare 8 superwash merino silver gray #797.
