Basic Skills Necessary:

  • cast on
  • bind off
  • read chart
  • pick up and knit stitches

Pattern Description:

Green Goddess Socks use a simple twist stitch pattern to create an intricate looking geometric design. Constructed from the cuff down, yarn overs on alternate rounds add texture and a bit of laciness. The easily memorized stitch pattern will show through even with a variegated yarn. This is truly Green Goddess Dressing at its best!

Size: Women's average.
(The stitch pattern is very stretchy and will accommodate a range of sizes. If you have a very small foot, go down a needle size.)

Gauge: 30 sts/44 rows to 4 inches in stockinette
stitch, 44 sts to 4 inches in pattern stitch

Recommended yarn: Araucania Ranco Solid, 1 skein. Pictured in color #103

This is not a beginner pattern, but is easily completed by an intermediate beginner with sock experience or a more advanced knitter with no sock experience. Pattern assumes you can knit in the round on double pointed needles, read a 12 stitch/12 row chart, pick up stitches along heel flap, weave toe stitches together or do a 3-needle bind off. Pattern can be worked on two circular needles and grafting the toe together will eliminate the 3-needle bind off.

You Will Also Need:

  • 5 US #1/2.25 mm double pointed needles
  • stitch markers
  • tapestry needle
