These socks are knit top-down in the rnd with fingering weight sock yarn. The color pop accents are ideal for using leftover colors from your sock and shawl projects. Begin with 2x2 ribbing and continue striping your colors together with slipped stitches as you work with one color at a time. This project is a beginner friendly colorwork pattern that you can easily customize by knitting more triangles for a longer leg and foot or knit fewer triangles for a shorter size.
Sizes 1 [2, 3, 4, 5]
Size 4 shown on a US 13 / EU 47 size foot with an actual foot circumference of 10″ / 25cm.
5 [6, 7, 9, 10]″ / 13 [15, 18, 23, 25]cm leg and foot circumference. Measurements taken after blocking.
Socks are designed to fit an actual foot circumference of 6 [7, 8, 10, 11]″ / 15 [20, 23, 28, 30]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 socks can stretch a bit more, so if you knit a size that is 2″ / 5cm smaller than your actual foot size, then the sock should still fit well with a tighter fit.
The lengths of the cuff, leg, and foot are easily customizable by knitting more column stripes for a longer ankle and foot or fewer column stripes for a shorter leg and foot.
