I’m on a mission to fill every sock drawer in the world with beautiful, hand-knit socks!! I felt the only way to achieve this mission was to design a pair of socks EVERYONE could feel successful at knitting. I realize that turning a heel and knitting a gusset aren’t the worst things in the world (and in fact, some knitters really enjoy that part) but I’ve always dreaded it and it ended up being the one thing that prevented me from knitting all the socks. Knit top down, these scrappy socks are a complete joy to knit. 


Each pair of socks will take approximately 80-100 g/380-400 yds of fingering weight yarn. Using left over scraps and mini skeins works really well for this project. You can make your socks with any number of colors but for our sample, you’ll need 4 different colors.

Color 1: cuff + toe

Color 2: leg, heel, foot

Color 3: leg, heel, foot

Color 4: leg, heel, foot


If you'd rather knit a one-color sock, no worries, the instructions are at the end of the pattern!

Happy Knitting!
