Adorable ankle socks with rolled edge cuffs and practical ribbing support around the foot. Perfect fit with Clogs or wearing at home.

This pattern is written for teaching a class, so the instructions are very easy to follow with step-by-step sections.

Please make sure that you get the right gauge and choose the right size, 1” negative ease with your foot circumference. Tighter gauge and fit make these short socks stay on your feet well.

YARN
The Navy / Purple sample shown is knitted with Hikoo / CoBaSi DK.
(sorry--- the rainbow ones are knitted with stash yarns, so dont have info about the yarns.)
The third one is knitted with Hedgehog DK yarn.
If you can get the right gauge, any machine washable DK, Sport weight yarn would work.

The yardage above is a total of MC and CC.
S (M, L) - MC / 120 (140, 160). CC / 50 (60, 70)

These socks are also great to just knit with one color too.

SIZE
Please choose the size, 1” negative ease with your foot circumference.

Additional informations

  • If you want to knit these socks with smaller yarn (gauge 7sts /1”), you can follow L size instruction to get S finished size. Sorry M and L sizes don’t work with this formula.
  • Ribbing section is knitted with MC and CC and carry the both yarns around. If you feel this is too much work, you can knit with all with CC.
