“Should I do this, or should I do that? Alternatively, maybe I should…” The difficulty of making a decision is a familiar situation for us. While you’re thinking about “should I” and “could I,” knit yourself a pair of Ehkä socks! Their stitch pattern will “lean” with you as you debate your choices.

ehkä (fin)- maybe (eng)

These socks are an easy knit with stitches that are easy to learn and memorize. The result is a delightful texture that is fun to knit. Bring a new twist into your sock knitting with Ehkä.

These socks are worked in the round, from the top down, with a tradition heel flap and heel turn. Gorgeous picots give Ehkä just the right touch!

For the Ehkä socks you’ll need aran weight yarn and 3,5mm dpns.

I have included nine (9!) size options into the pattern (3 for children, 3 for women and 3 for men), so I promise you that you will find a sizing that fits you perfectly.

My goal is to offer you a pleasant and relaxing knitting experience. You don’t have to worry about looking up tutorials, because I have all the techniques covered for you. In the pattern for Ehkä socks I’ll teach you step-by-step how to make the picot edge and how to work the cable stitch without a cable needle. I will also guide you in the secrets of swatching and measuring your gauge.

You can either print out all the pages or just the pages you want. The pattern for the socks fits nicely into one A4 paper.

I’m offering pattern support. Don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions about the pattern, I’m more than happy to help. :)
