The pattern now includes instructions to make both the Sassy Socks and Sassy Mitts!

Sassy Socks are the ultimate in instant gratification knitting! Turn a machine knit tube into a pair of beautiful hand-dyed socks in no time at all - just add the ribbing, heel, & toe and you are ready to go. These Sassy Sock Tubes tubes are hand dyed after they are knit, so the finished socks retain the painterly beauty of the hand dyeing process.

The pattern now contains bonus instructions to make fingerless Sassy Mitts with your leftover sock tube! Each mitt uses about 4.25” of the sock tube and 7 grams of contrast yarn.

These socks are made from a hand dyed sock tube. This is a tube of stockinette stitch machine knit at a circumference that can be used for making socks. These tubes are hand dyed after they are knit, so the finished socks retain the painterly beauty of the hand dyeing process.

You can purchase the Sassy Sock Tube Set from Marianated Yarns here.

The tubes are about 50” long- if you want to make 2 pairs of socks, that gives you almost 12½” of sock tube per sock between the toe and ribbing. I used 9¾” of the tube for each of my socks.

For picking up stitches, I like to go down to a size 0 US/2.0 mm needle.

Sock tube circumference of 64 (72) sts.

These are machine knit tubes, and the fabric is fairly stretchy. Even though the tube may be narrower than your typical hand knit sock, the extra stretch allows the socks to fit comfortably.

Sock tube and yarn:
Marianated Yarns Sassy Sock Tube Set; approx. 50 inch length sock tube with coordinating 50g skein of yarn; 75% superwash merino/25% nylon, shown in Cassis Drift.

Size 1.5 US/2.5 mm circular needle, 32”/80cm long, or preferred needles for small circumference knitting in the round, plus extra needles for picking up and holding stitches. Adjust needle size if necessary to obtain the correct gauge.

About 9 sts and 11 rows = 1”/2.5 cm in Stockinette stitch knit in the round, or stitch gauge needed to approximate the gauge of your sock tube. The gauge of your tube may vary, try to get as close as possible, but it doesn’t have to be exact.

Removable stitch markers, tapestry needle.
