A download of this pattern is included when you buy the yarn - so this is only for knitters who want to use other yarns.
A simple pair of socks worked from the top-down. Easy enough for a first-timer, this pattern marries a basic sock pattern with lots of mini-skein striping for added fun. The ends from the stripes are knitted in as-you-go, to avoid having to weave them all in at the end. Of course, you can keep life simpler by making your socks from a single skein of yarn – this pattern will still work for you!
YARN1 x The Knitting Goddess DK Rainbow Mini Skein Sock Kit
Shown in DK Rainbow Stripes and Coal.
DK weight; 100% British Whitefaced Woodland Wool (non superwash);
420m/459yds per 140g/4 oz kit
Kit quantities: Main Colour: 300m in 100g
Contrast Colours 120m in 40g
Each kit contains the Main Colour and eight Contrast Colours. There are equal amounts of the Contrast Colours, so you can use them in whatever order you would like. Each kit contains enough contrast yarn to work the wide stripes on a pair of socks in the largest size at the correct tension, plus a margin of 10%.
This means there’s enough contrast yarn to work both socks in the Wide Stripe Sequence, Narrow Stripe Sequence or one sock of each.
NEEDLES AND NOTIONS
2.75 mm/UK 12/US 2 set of 4 double pointed needles or size needed to obtain correct tension.
2 stitch markers.
Tapestry needle for weaving in ends.
24 stitches and 40 rounds to 10 cm/4” over unblocked stocking stitch in the round.
Socks last longest (and are most comfortable) when worked to a tight tension. The specified tension should produce a fabric that still has plenty of stretch (not too tight), yet will wear well.
Small (Medium, Large)
Sock circumference: 18 (20, 22) cm
Measure around the arch of your foot and select the sock circumference size which is 2 cm smaller than the measurement of your arch. This ensures that you end up with a sock which fits your foot snuggly. Buy the kit which includes yarn and pattern here
