Georgia Socks are a sweet pattern with lots of fun packed into it. Lots of stripes, easy lace and a cut in heel keep things exciting, and they are so quick to knit up that I know you can’t stop at just one pair!
These are named for my daughter, who loves beautiful yarn, and wearing hand knit socks, but only if they’re shorties. This pattern is for her, and for all of us that just love a quick knit and cute short socks. Happy knitting, Friends. ♡

Georgia Socks are:

  • three size options (and easily modified to add or take away stitches)
  • mostly “vanilla” stockinette stitch
  • cuff down
  • a cut in heel
  • standard toe
  • easily modified to be toe up, or to include your favourite heel or toe
  • video links provided for cut In heel, Long Tail cast on, Kitchener stitch
  • charts and written instructions for lace
  • step by step picture tutorial for the cut in heel
  • this is a super fun pattern to use mini skeins or little bits of leftover yarn
  • professionally tech edited

Thank you so much as always to Kate for her technical wisdom, and all the amazingly generous knitters that donated their time, energy, passion and insights when test knitting this pattern. I am so grateful to you all. xx
