Free pattern: Yarnscape’s Sock Recipe

Another free pattern! I’m releasing this now to celebrate Footsie being chosen as as this week’s Yarn of the Week over at Affinity Yarns!

This is my go-to recipe for basic, simple socks that fit well and stay up.  The pattern’s been almost done for months – since last year, I think?! – but the stumbling block, as ever, was photography.  Photographing your own feet is not the easiest thing in the world.

But Woody is always available to help.  I didn’t plan for him to be part of the photoshoot – but he had firm ideas of his own.

These are simple, work-a-day socks.  The cuffs are 1×1 ribbing; the leg and the top of the foot 3×1.  They use a short-row heel, and a ‘star’ toe.  I love the star toe; it’s very, very easy to work, looks pretty, fits like a dream, and doesn’t have to line up with the rest of the sock in any special way.

You can download my simple sock recipe from here – or add it to your Ravelry queue here.  Happy knitting!

    I haven’t tried the star toe, yet. Maybe the next pair I knit should incorporate that!
