Compassion Socks are stretchy worsted weight socks with a simple mock cable detail in one size to fit most women. It is a free pattern designed for The Cupcake Girls Handmade Project. This group makes items for clients of The Cupcake Girls, a nonprofit that offers nonjudgmental resources/support to women in the adult entertainment industry. We knit and crochet baby items, blanket squares, and socks as an expression of support and compassion. To learn more, please visit our group on Ravelry: The Cupcake Girls Handmade Project and join the group to stay updated on what we are doing.

The sample used worsted weight superwash wool, but any good quality washable yarn in a light worsted weight (wool, cotton, acrylic, or a blend) should work. Since wool is light weight, you get a fair amount of yardage in 100 grams. You may need an extra 50 grams if you opt for a heavier cotton or acrylic.
