When you want a warm, practical sock that'll do the job for everyday use, these are the socks for you. They're comfy and will keep your toes toasty when you're taking a hike, splitting firewood, or lazing around the house. They are knit from the top down on double-pointed needles. The heel is constructed with a heel flap. Bottoms of the toes are Kitchener stitch closed. The ribbing helps to keep the socks from bagging around the ankles. This pattern is my adaptation of the pattern I got from my local yarn shop when I bought yarn for my first ever pair of socks. It has served me well for many years and for many, many pairs of socks. Directions are for adult medium.
7 1/2 stitches / inch [2.5 cm]
This pattern is somewhat forgiving if your gauge isn't precisely the same.

Yarn arts have been a part of my life since my mom taught me to knit when I was 10. My house is full of sweaters, mittens, dish towels, dolls, bath mats, and other items I've knitted or crocheted. Loved ones stay warm with my hand-knitted socks, gloves, hats, and scarves. Many of them are my own designs. I love sharing my creations with other yarn artists.View all patterns by designer (30) »
