      These top-down socks showcase marled and self-striping yarns beautifully! Choose one main color plus one ball of self-striping yarn and enjoy the easy to knit slip stitches and stripes. There are five sizes to choose from with notes on how to customize the leg and foot to perfectly fit your feet. The pattern includes video links to help you with any special techniques from casting on to working the heel flap and knitting jogless stripes.

      Finished Measurements

      5.5 [6.5, 8, 9, 10]′′ / 14 [17, 20, 23, 25]cm leg and foot circumference. Measurements taken after blocking.

      Size 4 shown on a US 13 / EU 47 size foot with an actual foot circumference of 10′′ / 25cm.

      Socks are designed to fit an actual foot circumference of 6.5 [7.5, 9, 10, 11]′′ / 17 [19, 23, 25, 28]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 pattern repeats for a longer leg or foot or fewer pattern repeats for a shorter leg or foot.

      Fingering weight


      MC - 200 [330, 380, 400, 440]yds / 183 [302, 347, 366, 402]m

      Yardage amounts may vary depending on the length of your leg and foot. I overestimated the yardage amounts to assist with your having enough yarn if you have a longer foot or if you knit the leg a bit longer.
