~ pamper yourself or someone special with these luscious cashmere blend socks ~

Lounging around the house, keeping feet cosy on a cold winter night or just pampering your feet, these cashmere blend socks are a special delight for any feet.
Featuring a twisted-stitch design on the front and back leg and the top of the foot, these top-down, mid-calf socks begin with an Estonian Cast On. The modified 1 x 1 twisted rib extends into the main design of the sock. The heel is a standard slipped-stitch heel flap and the socks ends in a wedge toe.

3 Adult sizes; sizes shown are finished foot circumference of sock; intended to be worn with 0.5 - 1” / 1 - 2.5cm of negative ease.

2.75mm / US 2 for Cast On and Ribbing
2.5mm / US 1.5

  • DPNs or two 24” / 61cm circular needles for two circulars technique, or one 32” / 81cm or longer circular needle for Magic Loop technique

Stitch pattern for sock leg and top of sock includes both charted and written directions.

A picture tutorial is included in the pattern for the Estonian Cast On. Written directions are provided for grafting the sock toe.

A new version (v1.2) of the Guilty Feet socks pattern has been uploaded. The change: page 6 at the bottom of column 1, the Decrease Round before the toe shaping has been amended to be more clear.

A new version (v1.1) of the Guilty Feet socks pattern has been uploaded. There was a line of extraneous text at the top of page 6 in the Impeccable Knits v1.0 pattern. The “All Sizes” heading at the top of column 1 on page 6 has been removed in v1.1 as the two rows under this heading apply to the Medium size only (not to all sizes). (This correction does not apply if you have the original Knit Picks version.)
