I designed these socks years and years ago, (before I had my Skipton studio and when I was a freelance hand knit designer working with an American distributor) I have always loved a dk sock. So quick to knit and they just feel like you are wearing a hug on your feet. I have used lots of different types of yarn for these socks, many that I will say are ‘vintage’ now (you could read that as discontinued too but we don’t like that word in the yarn world do we??)
I love these socks with the Mohair Tweed and I’ve used yarn that has lots of beautiful natural fibres in them but they do eventually need a bit of darning!
They do need a little bit of nylon to make them last in wellies, so ColourLab Sock DK is great for this type of use.
I wear my Simple Socks almost every winter, rotating the 100% natural fibres ones while the ones with nylon in are worn in my wellies!
Warm feet mean warm heart and body!
For this pattern I used:
Yarn & Amounts: One 100g hank of dk weight yarn.
Needles: Set of four double pointed 3.75mm needles.
Gauge (tension): 24 stitches and 32 rows to 10cm square over stocking stitch using 3.75mm needles.
Measurements: to fit UK size 4-5 but will fit all foot lengths when knitted to the desired length as indicated in the pattern.
