Arwetta is my go to sock yarn when I’m knitting my everyday socks. Socks made with Arwetta can easily be worn in sneakers and they feel very soft next to the skin. Because Arwetta is merino wool I recommend that you knit it with quite a tight gauge in order to avoid pilling and wearing out. I usually knit my socks with 2mm needles (US 0) and with those needles I usually get gauge 32-34 sts / 10cm (4”). For a pair of adult socks you’ll need two skeins (100g) of yarn.
My two patterns featuring Arwetta are the Stripes’n’Flowers and the Harebell socks. If you prefer vanilla socks checkout the stitch count for your size from the table below and use my Knitgrammed patterns for either cuff-down socks or toe-up socks.
Gauge: 32sts / 10cm (4”)
Needles: 2mm (US 0). Adjust needle size to obtain the correct gauge.
