Pattern Details

I designed these socks because I couldn't find the perfect pattern for me - the one for which I could: - memorize the pattern - not need a stitch marker - be able to stop at any of four different needles when called upon on walk off a subway car or down the stairs of a bus without losing my place, and - not go crazy from not being able to see obvious signs of progress and not have the socks bag at the ankle, either. The fact that they're fun like a pair of kids' rain boots is just a bonus! Pattern includes: - both written pattern and charts - full directions plus a cheatsheet to cut out and carry in your bag - tips (with photographs) on how to minimize holes while picking up gusset stitches - step-by-step Kitchener stitch instructions for grafting toes shut BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Knit in the round Increase Decrease GAUGE 34 sts, 46 rows = 4" in stocking st (Please take time to check gauge - if you don't naturally knit with relaxed tension, you may need to go up a needle size or two.) SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Foot: 7.5 (8.5)" circumference (Medium stretches to fit comfortably on 8" foot) Length: 8.5" from heel base to cuff centre back (Sizes are given for both medium and large.)

Recommended with this pattern

  • Knitterly Things' Vesper Sock (100% superwash merino, 428 yds/100g), 1 skein sufficient for most foot sizes (if you have both a long and wide foot, consider a contrast colour for ribbing, heel flap/turn, and toe)
  • 2.25mm set of 5 double pointed needles, or size to obtain gauge
  • safety pins to mark rows, if desired
