Toe Up AND Cuff Down instructions included. Your download includes 2 PDFs, so you can print the instructions you want.

These sweet little socks are the perfect introduction to stranded colourwork and come in two different constructions: toe up OR cuff down - so everyone’s happy!

A great scrappy project, or use a 3 skein sock set from your favourite indie dyer! Or if you’re anything like me, and have about a million mini skeins, you can mix and match for lots of happy pairs!

There are two PDFS included in your download - one for TOE UP socks and one for CUFF DOWN socks. Colourwork charts and schematic included.

Skill Level: Intermediate
Skills required: Knitting in the round, basic short rows, basic colourwork (this would be a great first colourwork pattern!)


While I always list 1 skein of sock yarn as a generic requirement, with these shortie socks, you may find that you use anywhere from 20g to 50g of your main colour. I encourage you to make multiple pairs or mix and match your scraps or partially finished skeins.

Main Colour (MC): 1 skein, or 100g of sock yarn.
Sample used less than 40g/180 yards for size M.

Contrast Colour 1 (CC1): 1 mini skein, or 20g of contrast colour sock yarn.
Sample used approx 16g/70 yards of CC1.

Contrast Colour 2 (CC2): 1 mini skein, or 20g of contrast colour sock yarn.
Sample used approx 6g/28 yards of CC2.

Exact usage will vary based on length of leg/foot. In testing, all testers found 20g mini skeins to be sufficient for CC1 + CC2 for all sizes.

Sample uses: Polka Dot Creek Classic Sock Set in ‘Crushed Velvet.’ Many thanks to Shelley for providing yarn support for this project!
