Hi socks are easy to work, suitable for beginners and those who are nervous about knitting socks. The sock is worked completely in the round, with no short rows, no picking up stitches, no grafting, no seaming and no bind-off. You can make this sock with just a cast-on, knit, purl and slip stitches, plus simple increasing and decreasing. More confident knitters can add extra techniques, as noted in the pattern, for their preferred results.

Hi Socks design presents a new concept of turning the heel by working the instep. The adaptable pattern can be worked over any stitch count. The calculations are given for a wide range of cast-on stitch numbers.

Because it is symmetrical, this new design works equally well for top-down and toe-up socks. Another benefit is that this heel doesn’t break up stripes. Reinforced sock yarn is recommended for everyday socks with at least 20% polyamide in the content.

The pattern includes written instructions, photographs and a chart, and all techniques are clearly explained. Nine videos accompany every stage of knitting. Please note: all videos are muted.
