Have you been scared to knit socks? I was! I am now completely addicted, and this is my personal favorite vanilla sock recipe. I hope you enjoy it, and that it inspires you to knit your own socks. With practice and patience, you will be successful!
This pattern provides instructions for an afterthought heel. If you would like to substitute a different heel, simply omit the heel instructions, and substitute your chosen heel after completing the leg.
This pattern is written for sizes small(medium, large) and are designed to fit a 7(8, 9) inch foot circumference. Please note that sock fabric has a lot of stretch, and each size will realistically fit 6-8(7-9, 8-10) inch feet. I suggest choosing the size that best suits the amount of negative/positive ease you prefer for socks.
The yarn used in the sample is no longer available. We have made some substitution suggestions in the Kit Builder below.
