My friend Helen suggested that the textured motif in my Squish Me hat pattern would be perfect for the pair of comfy, slouchy socks she was wanting—what could I say except, “You got it, Helen”. And so this top-down sock was conceived, with four sizes (XS/S/M/L) to fit just about anyone we know. With a quick and easy knit/purl motif, making them for gifts is a pleasure (and putting oneself on the gift list is not at all unreasonable).
Better Breakfast Fingering, Stone Soup Fingering, or any springy sock blend with 400-425 yards per 4 ounces.
Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size and elasticity.
6(7.5, 9, 10.5) inches (unstretched) in circumference to fit feet measuring up to 7(8.5, 10, 11.5) inches around widest point
350(400, 450, 500) yards
32 sts and 48 rows = 4 inches in stockinette
DPNs size US1 (2.25mm) or size to obtain correct gauge.
