Time for another new pattern! It’s one that’s dear to my heart (or feet). And it’s in Knit Picks’ newest collection: Simply Socks, which is all about those socks you want to knit again and again and wear every day.
These are my Truly Everyday Socks. If you’re related to me, they’re probably really familiar to you, because I’ve been making them for years and have been given out on more than one Christmas morning.
They’re a super-simple top-down sock with 2×2 ribbing at the top, a turned, reinforced heel and nice, neat toe. I’ve covered the leg and instep with a really simple knit/purl basket-weave pattern that you’ll be able to memorize before you’re even an inch into the first sock. I love these socks. I’ve made probably a dozen pairs using this basic pattern over the years. They’re unisex and utilitarian, but not boring (to wear or knit), and could easily be sized up or down. Plus, they’re a great way to show off that special skein of hand-dyed yarn you’ve got squirreled away.
Head over to Knit Picks and pick up a copy of my Truly Everyday Socks, and make yourself a pair (or twelve).
