These bed socks are a quick knit from the cuff down with worsted weight yarn using magic loop, 2 circulars, or double pointed needles. Knitter’s choice! Alternating bands of knits and purls create a scrunchy fabric that traps warm air at the ankle.
Finished sock circumference is 8 (8.75, 9.5) inches, for approximately women’s US 5-6-7 (7-8-9, 9-10.5) shoe size. I like them with zero to ½” negative ease, a bit looser than a normal sock.
They feature a contrasting heel and toe (you need the extra yardage to complete the socks). I’ve used two 50g cakes of Knit Circus Ringmaster Panoramic Gradient, and 35g of a 50g skein of contrast color for heels and toes.
Thanks to tech editor Amanda Woodruff, and test knitters Jacqueline Lydston, Denise Delagarza, and Ann Berg.
