If you’ve not done sock knitting before, knitting your first pair of socks can be a daunting task. From knee-high to yoga socks, vertical to lace, soft to chunky, this week’s sock knitting patterns are guaranteed to put winter in your step! Also, these socks are designed with the first-time sock knitter in mind. Now, make your way into the sock knitting world.

 

Shell Cottage Socks

by Helen Stewart

If you are a new sock knitter, maybe get started with these Shell Cottage Socks. They feature a fun and easy ribbed “knot” stitch for the leg and top of the foot. In particular,  the twists line up like rows of pretty seashells on the cottage walls, and this stretchy rib makes these socks as cosy as can be. Although this may look impressive, the pattern is simple and gratifying, even for newish sock-knitters.

 

Sock Hop Knee Socks

We would like to introduce these knee socks because they are great for fashion with the added benefit of keeping your legs warm. These knee socks which feature a striped turtleneck sweater have been shaping for a perfect fit. Whether you are walking along a babbling riverbank or watching cherry blossoms fall on a blustery spring day, you will love these knee-high socks.

 

Yoga Socks

These yoga socks are perfect for any activity where you want some warmth and comfort but don’t want to slide around. This simple sock pattern is knit on a set of four double-pointed bamboo knitting needles of 3.25 mm. You can knit them from top-down in the round, and bind off stitches to create an opening for the heel.

 

Vertical Sock

by Patons

Why not do socks on Interchangeable Circular Knitting Needle? This is another favorite way for many knitters to knit socks. No laddering, no need to switch needles… just smooth knitting!  Particularly, except that you use one very long HiyaHiya cable (usually a 40+ inch), and has a bonus to makes available knitting 2 socks at one time.  You’ll have lots of fun knitting and wearing these vertical socks!

 

Diamond lace socks

This feminine sock has an elegant diamond-shaped lace pattern climbing up along the front of the foot. To assure a comfortable fit and staying elasticity, the remaining upper side of the sock is knitted in a 1:1 rib with twisted knit stitches. Especially,  this is a simple lace pattern that is easily done on straight needles which are perfect for lace sock knitting.

 

Sock of Lamb

What a cute way to warm up those precious little toes. These lamb socks can be made in classic neutral colours, pastel baby colours or fun bright colours. Make several to match all their favourite outfits. Fits 0 to 12 months babies.

 

Gluttony Socks

Have you tried knitting socks on two circular needles? It’s possible and may be easier if you don’t like working with double-pointed needles (or DPNs). Whether you’re a beginner or a professional, you will enjoy this sock knitting pattern which knit in the round on two circular needles.

 

If you would like to learn how you can make your own basic socks using double-pointed needles, straight needles,  1 long, circular needle, or 2 circular needles, this week’s collection will definitely give you lots of inspiration for your next sock knitting project.
