Pattern Description:

A fun, playful sock that would work well for both women and men, the Screwball Socks are both stretchy and slouchy, and really comfortable. The reverse-stockinette raised ridge spirals evenly down from the garter stitch cuff to the garter stitch, short-row heel. The heel and stripe blend seamlessly with the reverse-stockinette sole, while on the instep the ridge keeps winding its way along, all the way down to the garter stitch wedge toe.

The pattern is written for sizes small through x-large (7.5"-9").

The yarn used is Socks That Rock Lightweight, in the colorway "Downpour". Note: there is exactly enough yarn in 1 skein of STR Lightweight to knit a 3" gauge swatch and 1 full pair of XL socks as per the pattern. If you make the largest size and want to extend the cuff, leg or foot then you will need more than 1 skein, or to undo your swatch.


30 stitches and 44 rows = 4 inches in Stockinette Stitch

  • small, medium, large, and x-large (size shown is XL)


  • fingering weight (sock) yarn, US 11/2 - 2.5 mm needles
