Toe-up DK socks. A quick, textured knit, that looks way more complicated than it is.
Clear enough for a new sock knitter to feel confident tackling. Line by line, written instructions and accompanying charts put together in such a way that it takes all the guess work out of things.
Written for three different sizes. Be sure you are following the right instructions for your sock.
So much to love about this pattern … toe-up construction, seamless gusset, no wrap and turn malarkey, gorgeous heel turn, slip-stitch heel flap, no picking up stitches, beautiful textured pattern that’s just knit and purl stitches, DK so knits up quick …. so, so quick …. I’m not a ‘sock knitter’ so having a quick knit appealed to me.
There are handy progress check boxes at the end of each row so you can keep a visual track of where you are.

I can't wait to see your fabulous socks.
Yarn, Needles and Notions
DK, 100g (224m/244yds) for small and medium.
If knitting the large size you will need approx 120g so you could do a contrast toe, heel and rib (at 9g per sock) so perfect for using up those scrap yarns ... or a lovely excuse to buy more yarn.
- 3mm dpns or circulars using magic loop.
- Tapestry needle (for sewing those dreaded ends in).
- Removable stitch marker (optional to attach to front of toe to remind you which is needle 1)

Finished item size – (sock foot length unstretched).

Huge thank you to Gemma, one of my Knit Tribe, who put the idea (quite literally) in my lap, that my Escape collection needed this addition.
