Happy My Birthday, everyone! Please enjoy this free (forever) pattern as my gift to you! :)

These shorties may just be the snuggliest and easiest to make socks EVER! These socks are knit from the top down, with a heel flap and gusset, and knit up quickly using a DK weight yarn and 3.25mm/US 3 needles. Experienced sock knitters can knit these up super quickly for gifts (gifts to yourself also count), and newer sock knitters can ease into the world of socks with this easy pattern!

This pattern contains three sizes. Finished socks will fit most teen - adult feet. Small adjustments to increase or decrease the size of your sock can easily be made. If you choose to make mid-calf length socks, please note that you may require additional yarn.


Skills required: Knitting in the round, increasing, decreasing, slipped stitches, simple lace, picking up stitches, and kitchener stitch.

Requires: 1 skein of your favourite DK weight yarn! A blend with Nylon is ideal for socks, however you can use a plied 100% merino as well. (You may like to hold a strengthening thread throughout the heels and toes.)
