NO swatch, ANY yarn socks by Ida-Maria Tyyskä

NO swatch, ANY yarn socks

This pattern is available for free.

I’ve heard that dreams have a tendency to come true if you say them aloud so I’m going to share my silly dream with you: I’m dreaming that my no swatch, any stitch count socks would be the most popular sock pattern on Ravelry. So please join me for a knitalong and lets see if we can make this silly dream of mine to come true.

Have you ever wondered how many stitches should you cast on for a pair of socks or when should you start heel for your toe-up sock?

Wonder no more because with the help of this sock pattern, you can make a pair of perfectly fitting vanilla socks of any size and with almost any yarn. No swatching required!

It’s possible because I’ve made a collection of interactive patterns that will do the math for you. The pattern is written for the magic loop method but it can be easily adjusted for double-pointed needles as well.

The pattern is not a pdf but in a form of series of blog posts!

You can select from 4 different heel and toe patterns and mix and match them as you like.

Heels: short row, afterthought, flap & gusset and reinforced flap & gusset heel
Toes: star, round, wedge and rounded barn toe
Yarn weights: Fingering, Sport, DK, Worsted
