HiKoo® CoBaSi Multi and Solid, 55% Cotton, 16% Bamboo, 8% Silk, 21% Elastic Nylon; 220 yards / 50 gram hank; 2 hanks in MC (Multi), 1 hank in CC (Solid).

addi® Needles & Notions:
2.5mm (approx. US 1) 40” circular needle for Magic Loop, or circular needles for two-circ method.
Or size needed to obtain gauge
Tapestry needle, waste yarn in comparable weight, stitch marker (optional)
Note: DPNs can be used in place of circular needles, but the pattern is written for Magic Loop/two-circs. To adjust, simply work ‘Needle 1’ over your #1 and #2 DPNs and ‘Needle 2’ over your #3 and #4 DPNs.

32 sts & 48 rounds = 4” in Stockinette stitch in the round.

3.25” wide laid flat (6.5” around), stretches comfortably to 5” wide laid flat (10” around)
From Foot Ribbing to Heel: 7”
From Heel to Cuff: 8.25”
To save time, check your gauge and read all instructions thoroughly before beginning.

Designer’s Notes:

  • If you prefer tighter ribbing, use one needle size smaller in those areas.
  • Sock is worked from the ‘toe’ up, even though there is no toe!
  • These socks can be worked two-at-at-time. Just note that you will either need to split the solid color hank into two balls, or pull from the inside and outside of a caked yarn.
