The City Stripe Socks use the brand new selfstriping yarn by Scheepjes: Scheepjes Downtown.

This is a toe-up sock pattern with afterthought heel, and includes instructions and tutorial video’s or a photo tutorial for most parts.

The pattern is available in six adult sizes, and you’ll need 60-100 grams for a pair of socks.

This pattern is available for free on my blog, and also as a paid PDF. The blog contains English and Dutch instructions on one page. If you’d rather have a separate file for each language, I recommend getting the PDF. It’s also ad-free and easy to print!

Sizes available
EU 35-47 / US 5-14 / UK 2.5-12

approx. 60-100 grams of Scheepjes Downtown yarns (2 balls). For the sample socks I used colourway 400 After Dark.

Needle Size
2.25 mm needles

These socks are knit from the toe to the cuff, after which the Afterthought heel is added. The PDF includes full instructions plus links to photo and video tutorials.

This pattern is available in English and Dutch.

Any questions about the pattern, please go ahead and ask them in our Facebook Group. Also a fun place to share pictures!
