This month, we’re celebrating one of our favorite portable projects – socks!
Hand-knit socks are always such a treat. Just knowing my toes are wrapped in all that luscious yarn makes me feel so pampered. When I’m lounging around the house (probably knitting), thick socks are perfect for keeping my feet warm and making me feel cozy and snug. Then, when I’m out and about, handmade socks are like my own fancy little secret underneath my shoes.
In honor of Sock Month, I’d like to share a few sock patterns from my queue with you.
I’m a pretty inexperienced sock knitter with only one pair under my belt so far, so the Starter Socks will probably be the next pair I cast on. These comfy socks are just what I need when I’m relaxing on the couch watching movies and eating popcorn. Plus, they’re worked in worsted weight yarn, so I can have them finished in a jiffy!
Lazy Weekend Socks
The Lazy Weekend Socks are another fairly easy pattern knit in worsted weight yarn. The contrasting color on the toe and heel give them a cute and classic look, and the ribbing from the cuff is continued down the top to give them a little texture. They’re sized for both men and women, so these will make a fabulous go-to gift pattern.
Free Corinthian Sock Pattern
Who can resist a free sock pattern? It’s even better when it has cool cables like the Corinthian Socks! This fun pair is knit in fine yarn, so you can wear them anywhere your day might take you. With three sizes available, they’re also a great candidate for gifts.
Papaya Pompom Socks
Spring is in full swing, and the Papaya Pompom Socks are perfect for warm weather. The subtle lace ribbing along the top gives them a little flair, and the pompoms on the sides are adorably retro! They’d look so fun peeking out from the tops of your sneakers.
Socks for the Family Kits
We can’t leave out the little ones, and our handy Socks for the Family kits are sized for babies, toddlers, and kids! Each kit contains the pattern and all the yarn you’ll need to knit these simple socks. I get all gushy even thinking about the tiny baby socks, so imagine how everyone would react seeing these cuties at the next baby shower you attend. Starting at only $4.80, these kits are easy on the budget too.
I hope you’ll join me in celebrating Sock Month by casting on a new pair! Whether you’ve never knit a sock before, you’re a novice like I am, or you’re a sock-knitting fiend, we have a pattern to inspire you. Tell us which pattern you’re working on (or thinking about) here or on Facebook. We can’t wait to celebrate with you!
