Bubbles & Brioche Socks

    • This is a pdf knitting pattern.

      Gather a colorful collection of fingering weight sock yarn and enjoy the playful bubble stitches and two-color brioche. These socks are knit top-down in the round. Select one main color and choose several color pops to decorate the funto-knit stitch patterns. I used 7 total colors for my socks, but you can use as many colors as you like. The instructions include video links demonstrating how to cast on, weave in ends as you go, how to work the heel flap, and Kitchener stitch. Dive into your stash or collect a new skein or two of sock yarn for these wonderful Westknits socks!

    • Sizes 
      1 [2, 3, 4, 5]

      Finished Measurements

      6.5 [7.5, 8.5, 9.5, 10.5]″ / 16.5 [19, 22, 24, 27]cm ankle and foot circumference. Measurements taken after blocking.

      Socks are designed to fit an actual foot circumference of 7.5 [8.5, 9.5, 10.5, 11.5]″ / 19 [22, 24, 27, 29]cm. The socks are designed to fit with negative ease. Choose a size with a finished foot circumference measurement that is approximately 1″ / 2.5cm smaller than your actual foot circumference, so that the sock will fit nice and snug on your foot.

      The lengths of the cuff, leg, and foot are easily customizable by knitting more textured pattern repeats for a longer leg or foot or fewer textured pattern repeats for a shorter ankle or foot.

      Fingering weight


      Approximately 350 [430, 500, 550, 600]yds / 320 [393, 457, 503, 549]m total

      I recommend using 1 skein for the MC (cuff, heel, toe, & MC foreground brioche color).
      Use another skein for the CC (background brioche color).

      The bubbles contrast color stripes use small amounts of yarn. I used 5 colors for the contrast bubble stripes. I recommend having about 40 – 50yds of each color available for the 5 bubble colors. These are great for leftovers and mini skeins!
