Pattern Info:
These worsted weight socks are knit at a dense gauge for improved durability. They feature an asymmetrical toe fitted to follow the slope of your foot. Guided measurements and ProTips are included to help you Knit to Fit!
The plush heel pad and gusset make this sock a pleasure to knit and to wear. Choose colors with a soft or strong contrast according to your preference.

Sock Construction: Toe-up, fitted for left and right feet, reinforced heel pad, colorwork bands on instep and leg, twisted rib cuff.

Materials: Worsted/DK weight yarn in two colors
Usage: MC: 115 (135, 160, 175) yds; CC: 75 (100, 115, 125) yds. Choose a yarn that knits up well at a dense gauge for a longer wearing sock.

Sample yarns:
White & Pink version: The Farmer’s Daughter Fibers ‘Pishkun’ (DK/light worsted, 100% Rambouillet, 255 yds/100 g); Brown & Pink version: Handspun Manx Loaghtan woolen prep from hand carded roving, spun (worsted, 200 yds/100g); Green version: Patons Classic Wool (worsted; 100% wool 194 yds/100g).

Gauge: 22 sts and 32 rounds in 4 in/10 cm of stockinette stitch on smaller needles. Sample was knit at a dense gauge; choose a needle that gives you a firm but flexible fabric, and adjust size as needed.

Sizes: 1 (2, 3, 4) with 5.75 (7.25, 8, 8.75) in/15 (18.5, 20.5, 22) cm finished foot circumference and 7.25 (8.75, 9.5, 10) in/18.5 (22, 24, 26) cm finished leg circumference. Recommended to be worn with ½ in (1.5 cm) negative ease for a good fit and durability.

Needles & Notions: Sizes US 3 (3.25mm) for main sock body and US 4 (3.5mm) for colorwork chart in double pointed needles or long circular for magic loop, tapestry needle, scissors, removable stitch marker (optional).

Sample Info:
Green sock sample shown is Size 3 for a US Women’s Shoe Size 10.5 with 10.25 in (26 cm) foot length, 6 in (15 cm) leg measured above the heel, including a 2 in (5 cm) cuff. White & pink sample shown is size 2 for a US Women’s Shoe Size 7 with 8.5 in (21.5 cm) foot length, 6 in (15 cm) leg measured above the heel. The foot, leg, and cuff measurements are knit to fit; adding length in these areas will increase the yardage needed.
