The Lindal Crew Sock is part of my Lindal Collection. The design is original and includes wrap and turn sections to create short row shapes.

This pattern also includes a vector art diagram for yarn placement. If you have a bunch of partial ball windings that you would like to use up, it makes the perfect stash buster!


Knitting Tension: I knit these socks using a 000 / 1.5mm 24” circular needle. If you are able to actively adjust gauge while knitting, it will help with the construction of the sock. For the main body of the sock I knit relatively loosely and then only for the toe section and very central shapes, I knit tightly (keeping each stitch close to the needle as I drew the yarn through). This modification may affect your speed while knitting, so that is a good hint with tension. If you find it quick and easy to knit, it may be loose. If it is a little slower and more of a struggle to move the yarn, the tension will probably be tighter. Likewise - around the opening of the sock, here you will want to intentionally knit a little looser or tighter depending on your preference for fit. The sock can be knit without these finer adjustments, but will fit a little more snugly done in this manner. Additionally, because I knit loosely on the 000, you could just as easily knit a little tighter overall and go up a needle size or two, especially if you prefer a looser sock.

Fit: I wear a size US9 shoe and love the feel of the Small sock on my foot. I prefer a sock to fit a little more snugly! If you have similar preferences, I would suggest knitting the smallest size first. You could also knit the appropriate size, but go down a needle size for a little tighter fit.

Yarn: Urth Uneek fingering worked perfectly for this sock design. It has a beautiful gradual transition from one color to the next, frequently pooling into the patterned shapes. It also gives a very fun and irregular look from the right side of the sock to the left side, as well as from one sock to the next making it great for individuals who love mix-n-match socks! You could also use any sock yarn or gradient combination.
