Warm Feet for Everybody is a size inclusive vanilla sock pattern. It is a great pattern for beginner sock knitters. Knit from the toe up and in the round, these can easily be worked two at a time or with your favorite method of sock knitting.

The pattern is written for magic loop and includes an optional leg increase section for the perfect fit. This pattern can be adapted to include your favorite stitch pattern, or it can be knit as is to highlight your favorite variegated yarn.

A heart filled with gratitude to Mesha Mcmullen for editing and coordinating the publishing of this pattern and to Anne Vally of Little Skein In The Big Wool for providing yarn support and pattern design. And to my test knitters Sultan, Erin, Ellen, Jolanda, Aimee, Julie, Klio82, Erin, and Erin.

I set out to create a pair of size-inclusive socks that you could adapt with any pattern you would like, or you can knit them just the way they are.  Please feel free to take any or all elements from these socks to make a pair of socks that make you happy and comfortable.  I just ask if you are a designer, and use one of my elements in your pattern, that you link my pattern and give me credit for my work.

These socks will always be free, a gift from me to the knitting community. However, if you would like to support my work, please feel free to do so at my Ko-fi page. Ko-fi’s are never expected but always appreciated.
