Many a spinner strives to create the perfect sock yarn. However, lots of other handspun yarns would excel as socks: the accidental sport weight, the two-ply in need of an extra tight gauge, the DK weight boot sock yarn, or the fluffy, too-soft-to-be-anything-but-bed-socks merino. They need knitterly love too!
With these challenges in mind, I created the Spinner's Socks; an elegantly simple cuff down sock pattern with a unisex ribbed panel to provide both interest and elasticity.
Eight different sizes can be matched with fingering weight yarn to fit babies, children, women, and men.
Alternatively, the pattern can accommodate a range of yarns from a light fingering weight to a worsted weight to make an average sized woman's sock.
This pattern is perfect for handspun and commercial yarns alike, and is ideal for a first time sock knitter. Refer to this pattern for tips on spinning, swatching, and fitting your ideal socks.
