Men can be notoriously picky about their hand knit socks - they love 'em, but nothing too fancy. Keyll Socks are perfect for men, or anyone who prefers hand knit socks in a subdued style.
Designed as 'boot' socks, Keyll Socks are knit cuff down, featuring a very cushy rib pattern for the cuff & heel flap, while the leg is worked in a simple, textured design. With a short pattern repeat (both # of sts & rows), they are easily adjusted to fit almost any leg & foot.
The textured stitch pattern is very easy to work & memorize, and is both charted and written. Decreases for the gusset are worked along the bottom of the foot for better fit around the ankle/instep.
If you prefer to use two circular needles or the magic loop method, this pattern is easily converted.
You'll be pleasantly surprised at how quickly these socks knit up - and may find yourself knitting several pairs!
26 sts and 34 rows = 4 inches in Textured pattern

I've been a 'crafter' all my life, and especially enjoy fiber arts. My first professional design was published in 2005, and since then I've had my designs published in knit.wear, Knitscene, Creative Knitting, Love of Knitting, Knitcircus, Twist Collective, Three Irish Girls Yarns, Universal Yarns, and Cascade Yarns, along with several books by DRG Publications.
When not knitting, thinking about knitting or dreaming up new designs, I love spending time with my husband and pets, in the high plains of Colorado where we live.
