Hi, Knitters,
Edited to add: These socks fit my US shoe size 7.5 and average size ankle and leg. If your socks are too tight go up a needle size or two or add some stitches to the cast on number:)

First off, 250-300 yards of ANY worsted weight yarn will do - Cascade 220, Quince & Co. Lark, Madtosh Worsted, Lorna’s Laces….. any worsted weight. I prefer wool and it could be superwash or not ~ it’s up to you!

I am back with a companion pattern for the “How I Make My Socks” recipe that is found on my blog.

Here is the Rav project page link for “How I Make My Socks

The blog post connected to this pattern provides the numbers to make the same socks using a worsted/aran weight yarn.

The worsted weight version is a companion to the original sock pattern which is found on my blog.

You will need to simply plug in the numbers for the worsted weight version. The worsted weight socks are made exactly the same way as the original fingering weight socks only with the new numbers.

Have fun with your squishy new worsted weight socks!
