Simple cables and knit/purl texture combine in these unisex socks that comfortably hug the foot. They are worked from the cuff down and use a traditional heel flap and gusset and a wedge toe.

To knit these socks, you’ll need to know how to do the following:

  • knit and purl when working in the round and flat
  • read and work from a chart
  • do simple (4-stitch) cables
  • do simple decreases (k2tog, ssk, and p2tog)
  • pick up stitches along an edge
  • use Kitchener stitch to graft live stitches

Notions needed: stitch marker, cable needle, tapestry needle

A note on yarn usage: For most, a pair of socks will take 100 g of yarn (usually somewhere in the vicinity of 350-450 yds./320-411.5 m). However, if you are knitting the largest size and/or have very large feet, you might find that you need more than one skein of yarn, so please be sure that you have enough yarn for your socks before you start.
