Skill Level:

small skill level requirement Beginner

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • work flat and in the round
  • twist stitches (knit through the back leg)
  • do directional decreases (k2tog and ssk)
  • do yarnovers
  • pick up stitches along an edge
  • use Kitchener stitch to graft live stitches

Pattern Description:

Worked from the cuff down, these socks use directional decreases and yarnovers to create a swirling lace pattern that is intuitive and easily memorized. They feature a twisted rib cuff, an Eye of Partridge heel flap and gusset, and a wide toe.

Note: This pattern is not written with a particular needle type in mind and thus does not specify a needle number or where to place certain stitches at any point in the pattern. For the leg, you will need to be aware of the beginning of the round. For the foot, you will need to know which stitches constitute the instep and which stitches constitute the heel flap, gusset, and sole.

The lace pattern for these socks is both written and charted for both sizes.

To complete a pair of Newlin socks, you will need approximately 100 g of fingering weight sock yarn. Your actual yarn usage will depend on the length of your feet.

This pattern has been professionally tech edited and test knit.

I learned to knit from my aunt when I was about 7 years old, but it wasn't until 2005 that I got really serious about the sticks and string. I learned to spin in 2008 and began designing in 2011. Now my house is slowly being taken over by yarn and fiber.
