These 2 color brioche socks are knit toe up in DK weight yarn using the magic loop method. The pattern is easily modified for any foot length with shaping at the heel for a snug fit. A simple textural brioche pattern mixed with a german short row heel makes for a comfy and quick knit! I used Hedgehog Fibres DK in Vogue2018 (foreground) and Graphite (background).

(NOTE: If you are between sizes it’s better to size down as brioche is very stretchy.)
Foot circumference 8” (9”, 10”)

(NOTE: Yardage requirements are estimates, the final amount will depend on your foot length.)
