We just need a bit of fun sometimes, and these socks are designed to provide it! Featuring starburst patterning, elongated stitches, and knit and purl textures, you’re sure to have the fanciest feet in the room when wearing them!


SIZES
Small: 6.25” / 16cm circumference, fits approximate foot circumference of 7.5” / 19cm, and fits length of 9.5” / 24cm; women’s US 6–7.5 / EU 36–38
Medium: 7” / 18cm circumference, fits approximate foot circumference of 8.75” / 22cm, and fits length of 10” / 25.5cm; women’s US 8–9.5 / EU 38.5–41
Large: 8” / 20.5cm circumference, fits approximate foot circumference of 9.75” / 25cm, and fits length of 10.5” / 27cm; women’s US 10–12 / EU 42–44

Foot circumferences are measured around the ball of the foot at the widest point and should be used to choose your sizing. Foot lengths are measured from the tip of the toes to center of back of the heel, and are to be used as a general guide only. For the best fit possible, check all measurements given in the pattern by trying the socks-in-progress on the intended wearer. (See page 4 of the pattern for more details on knitting your socks to the correct foot length!)

YARN
100g fingering weight sock yarn. Sample used Circus Tonic Handmade Jubilee Sock (75% Superwash Merino, 25% Nylon; 464yds / 425m per 100g), in colourway Cockatiel, and required approximately 334yds / 306m (72g) for Medium Size pair of socks (women’s US 9.5 / EU 41).

Please note that the yardage requirements will vary depending on the heel option, sock circumference, foot and leg length, and any differences in gauge. If you are knitting the Large Size to the same foot length given in the pattern, you may need to remove a repeat from the recommended leg patterning length to ensure only 100g of yarn is required. The toe-up version of the socks is a great choice if you are unsure of your yardage requirements as you can split your yarn into 2 equally-sized balls (1 for each sock), knit each sock foot to your required length, and then knit the sock legs to matching lengths per the remaining yardage in each ball.

NEEDLES
– US 1 / 2.25mm needle, OR size to obtain gauge, at least 32” / 80cm length circular needle for working Magic Loop method, OR double-pointed needles

NOTIONS
– Cable needle
– Removable stitch markers / progress keepers (optional during heel turn {toe-up version}, OR for using a different style of needle / method of working in the round {if not using the Magic Loop method}, OR for marking beginning of round)
– Scissors
– Sock blockers (optional)
– Tape measure
– Tapestry needle

GAUGE
34 stitches x 48 rounds = 4” / 10cm in stockinette stitch, knit in the round and relaxed after blocking.
37 stitches x 48 rounds = 4” / 10cm in Starburst Stitch Pattern, knit in the round and relaxed after blocking.

NOTES
– The pattern instructions are written for the Magic Loop method of working in the round with a long circular needle. They are to be worked from the beginning to end of each round unless specified for stitches on first needle (N1; front of leg/top of foot) and second needle (N2; back of leg/sole of foot) separately. If you are using double-pointed needles, use markers as needed to designate between what will be these front and back halves of the sock.

– The pattern is also written for both toe-up and cuff down sock construction methods. A compiled pdf with both methods together in the one document is available to download, as well as separated toe-up and cuff down pdfs for your convenience Suggested cast ons and bind offs for each construction method have been included in the pattern and VIDEO TUTORIAL LINKS for these techniques are also provided.

– You have the option of working either a slip stitch heel flap with gusset (used in sample), or a short row heel for these socks. The heel flap and gusset option is great for feet with a high instep, or for those who want a reinforced heel, whereas a short row heel is shallower and uses less yarn. You will need to know how to work short rows by wrapping and turning for both options (see VIDEO TUTORIAL LINKS, page 3 of pattern).
