There are not many more perfect knitterly combos than garter stitch and slipped stitches, which means that this sock is going to become my go-to this summer. I hope it’ll become your go-to, as well! It’s the perfect counterbalance to highly variegated yarns, but works equally well in more subtle skeins, too.

This sock is from my latest sock collection, Socks for Busy B’s 5. Released as a part of the 2020 Summertime Sock Knitting Extravaganza, aka Socks on Vacay (aka Socks on Staycay due to the pandemic) with Knitted Wit, it’s the perfect collection of socks to knit all summer long. For more information on Socks on Vacay, check out my blog post.

YARN
approximately 330-400 yds/302-366 m fingering-weight yarn. For the socks shown, I used Knitted Wit Sock in Long Walks on the Beach (orange/blue), Acadia (brown/orange), & Theodore Roosevelt National Park (blue/grey).

GAUGE
32 sts & 48 rounds = 4”/10 cm in stockinette stitch in the round, measured after blocking.

FINISHED MEASUREMENTS
Small (Medium, Large): 7.25 (7.75, 8.25)“/18.5 (19.5, 21) cm foot circumference. 58 (62, 66) sts total.

Leg length is measured from top of heel and is completely customizable. Socks in Acadia and Theodore Roosevelt National Park are shown with a 4”/10 cm leg length and socks in Long Walks on the Beach are shown with a 5”/12.5 cm leg length (measured from top of heel).

A big thanks to Knitted Wit for the yarn support (as always!), my sweetie pie Stefan Lombard for the photography, and Meaghan Schmaltz for the Tech Editing!
