Sublimation Socks---the eBook

from sarah-marie's knitting patterns
(6) Name: 'Knitting : Sublimation Socks---the eBook
Sublimation Socks---the eBook
Sublimation Socks---the eBook

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit, purl, make 1, Judy's Magic Cast On, Jeny's Surprisingly Stretchy Bind Off, short rows.
  • Tutorials for listed techniques are linked in the pattern.

Pattern Description:

The Sublimation Socks eBook includes three different gauges (6 st./in. by 8 rows/in., 7 st./in. by 10 rows/in., and 8 st./in. by 12 rows/in.) of one sock pattern, each in three different sizes (small, medium, large). That's three gauges of the pattern for less than the price of two! You should purchase this eBook if you plan to make sublimation socks in multiple gauges. Otherwise, swatch and choose the pattern that most closely matches your row gauge.


6 st./in. and 8 rows/in.
7 st./in. and 10 rows/in.
8 st./in. and 12 rows/in.
The row gauge is important in this pattern; the stitch gauge, not so much.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Size S: foot circumference 7.5", foot length 8.5", total length (toe to cuff) 13"-14" depending on gauge.
  • Size M: foot circumference 8", foot length 9.25", total length (toe to cuff) 15"-16" depending on gauge.
  • Size L: foot circumference 9", foot length 10.5", total length (toe to cuff) 16".


  • For 6 x 8 socks: About 60g/2.1oz. of DK or light worsted yarn, in each of color 1 and color 2. This is just a bit more than one 50g/2oz. skein in each color.
  • For 7 x 10 socks: Two 50g/2oz. skeins of light DK yarn, one each in color 1 and color 2.
  • For 8 x 12 socks: Two 50g/2oz. skeins of fingering/sock-weight yarn, one each in color 1 and color 2.

You Will Also Need:

  • At least one circular needle (for the cast on); for the remainder of the socks, use needles for your preferred technique (one circular needle, two circular needles, or a set of double-pointed needles). Use whatever size needle you need to use in order to get the appropriate gauge (usually in the 2-4 range).
  • One (preferably locking) stitch marker to mark the start of rounds.
  • If you use japanese short rows, then you will also need a package of locking stitch markers.
