1. Easy Striped Socks Pattern for Beginners
For this pattern, I have selected, in my opinion, the easiest and most beginner-friendly sock knitting techniques.
To make it even easier I’ve added a lot of helpful images to the pattern page.
2. Universal Basic Sock Pattern
This is a universal sock pattern that you can use to knit perfectly fitting vanilla socks of any size and with almost any yarn. No swatching is required!
3. Ruusu Socks
This design comes with a unsual heel construction that has beautiful cable detail. To make the socks even prettier I’ve added a colorwork rose to the cuff.
This pair of socks is knitted toe up.
4. Lumi colorwork slippers
These warm Scandinavian-style colorwork slippers are worked from toe-up in the round so you don’t have to make a separate swatch.
5. Basic Ankle Socks
This is my favorite recipe for simple knitted summer socks that I love to wear with sneakers. I have written the pattern for fingering weight yarn but it can easily be adapted to different yarn weights.
This pattern is suitable for self-striping yarn because the heel construction does not break the striping pattern.
6. Antti Socks
These socks look like something my grandmother could have made for the men in our family. The inspiration for the colorwork motif comes from the traditional Finnish sweater pattern Jussi-paita.
This design is inspired by the Finnish fashion brand Marimekko. These socks are knitted cuff down and the pattern comes with a german short row heel.
The Ladder-Back Jacquard technique is used in the colorwork section and the fabric is thus stretchier than stranded colorwork would produce.
8. Heart baby socks
This pair of baby socks is knitted toe up and the pattern comes with a gusset heel.
Double-knitted reversible cuff make these socks special.
9. Tuiki Tuiki Ribbed Socks
These ribbed socks have a simple colorwork section that adds a little something to the design. They are knitted cuff-down with light DK weight yarn.
10. Basic Chunky Slippers
This pair of chunky slipper socks is knitted toe-up in one piece.
These are my favorite home socks. They are super cozy and warm.
11. Polaris Christmas Sctocking
This one is not meant to be worn but either way it is a sock.
The star pattern is made with twisted stitches.
