I’m on a mission to fill every sock drawer in the world with beautiful, hand-knit socks!! I felt the only way to achieve this mission was to design a pair of socks EVERYONE could feel successful at knitting. I realize that turning a heel and knitting a gusset aren’t the worst things in the world (and in fact, some knitters really enjoy that part) but I’ve always dreaded this and this ended up being the ONE thing that prevented me from knitting all the socks. This mock heel solved the problem.

Knit top down, with instructions written for dpns, (magic loop can be used) these scrappy socks are a complete joy to knit and even a beginner will be able to crank out a pair of socks in no time! I’ve also included a bonus section if you’d like to use just one color to knit these up!

Each pair of socks requires approximately 80-100 g/380-400 yds of fingering weight yarn. Using left over scraps and mini skeins works really well for this project. You can make your socks with any number of colors but for our sample, you’ll need 4 different colors.
Color 1: cuff + toe
Color 2: leg, heel, foot
Color 3: leg, heel, foot
Color 4: leg, heel, foot
