French Vanilla Cappuccino Socks - PDF Knitting Pattern
I can guarantee you that 99.9999999% of the time, I have a vanilla sock on the needles. I’ve knit so many pairs that I could probably knit one in my sleep. But let’s not test that. Holding knitting needles while asleep probably isn’t a great idea. ;-)
A vanilla sock pattern is the perfect place for a beginner sock knitter to start. But it’s also a great solution for advanced sock knitters who want to add in a cable or lace that you’ve found in another pattern.
I prefer to knit my socks on what I’ve affectionately named Zoom Zoom Needles 9” (23cm) circular. I renamed them because you can just zoom zoom round in circles. I knit the toe using magic loop and the zoom zoom needles for the rest of the sock.
In this pattern, you’ll find both toe-up and cuff-down instructions for knitting a basic vanilla sock. So grab your french vanilla cappuccino, your needles, and your yarn so we can cast on! Happy Knitting!
