Pretty much all of us here at SweetGeorgia love socks. I mean, LOVE them. And why not? These small, portable projects give you nearly instant gratification. Sock knitting patterns also let you explore new techniques and stitches without having to commit to a big design, like sweaters.
Here are some of our five favourite patterns that we think you should try!
Slackcountry Socks – $8 CAD Elegant, crisp cables travel in columns down the leg and foot, offering up loads of delightful texture. Hints of twisted stitches, a reinforced Dutch heal, and top down construction mean it is a fun project from start to finish.
Prismatic – $8 CAD Lovely lace sprinkles across the fabric like a prism, resulting in socks that are light, comfortable, and utterly enchanting. You’ll love how easy-to-memorize the stitch is and how it pairs with the twisted-rib cuff.
Evo Socks – FREE Varying stripes radiate out in a colour-blocking effect, perfect for our Party of Five sets or leftover stash yarn. These knit-from-the-top-down socks are fabulously simple to make, while feeling luxurious and cozy.
Peninsula – $8 CAD Beautiful lines and curves echo the stonework of Peninsula Park in Portland, Oregon in these gorgeous socks. Rich cables, lush columns, and a stunning fit from the to-up construction promise pure fascination.
Petal Socks – $8 CAD We love the romantic, feminine appeal of these socks, with the soft chevron motif and subtle stripes. The two colour design, using your favourite variegated colourway, makes for a truly personal, yet wonderfully easy, project.
