Simply Striped Socks By Kelley Hobart

Size Guide

This pattern is ideal for the beginning sock knitter. It provides a positive sock-knitting experience so you can delve into the world of sock knitting with the confidence needed to knit more advanced patterns. Simply Striped Socks are knit toe-up using Judy’s Magic Cast-On, the Magic Loop method, and an afterthought heel. There are no short rows in this heel method, just simple decreases! Ending with Jeny’s Surprisingly Stretchy Bind-Off prevents a tight cuff.

  • Yarn: Adriafil Knitcol(100% Superwash Merino wool; 137 yards per 50 gram ball),  or other sock weight yarn. 260 to 390 yards required for 1 pair of socks, depending on size and desired length of leg and cuff. Mine was size small and 11 Inches from heel to top of cuff.
  • Gauge: 24 sts and 32 rows = 4 inches
  • Needles: US #4 or size needed to obtain gauge
  • Notions: DK scrap yarn for afterthought heel, tapestry needle to weave in ends
  • Finished size:S (5-7), M (7-9), L (10-11)
  • Pattern Only!
