My design ideas and advice: These socks are the perfect My first Sock project. Super easy, in the world of sock knitting, and because they are knitted with aran weight yarn on 4.5mm dpns which means you have less stitches on the needles than if they are 4 ply. Also because they are aran they grow quicker than 4 ply so all win-win! These socks are great for wearing in wellies or for snuggling on the sofa with your knitting, favourite drink and favourite podcast or boxset.
For this pattern I used:
Yarn & Amounts: One 100g hank each of WYS Croft Shetland Aran (100% Bluefaced Leicester wool, 166m/182yds per 100g) in shade A & shade B.
This is enough to make at least two pairs when swapping B for A and A for B on the second pair.
Needles: Four 4.5mm double pointed needles.
Gauge (tension): 18 stitches and 24 rows to 10cm/4ins square over stocking stitch using 4.5mm needles.
Size: This sock fits all feet sizes with a simple adjustment that is shown in the pattern.
