I’m pleased to announce my very first sock pattern! This is a simple toe-up sock pattern with German short row heel.
Find the free version of this pattern here. The paid PDF version is without any ads, and easy to print for each separate language.
My favourite way of knitting socks is from the toe up and ending at the cuff, it makes it much easier for me to make the most out of the yardage I have available. For the foot, you’ll always have to make sure the length is spot on to get the correct fit. For the leg, you can basically vary from making very short socks, to making knee high socks! If you complete the foot first, you know afterwards that you can use up all of the yarn you have left over for the leg, so you can make the most out of your yarn. And maybe most importantly… no kitchener stitching the toe together!
I’ve divided the sock pattern into different sections, each with written instructions and instruction videos to make it even more clear.
EU 35-47 (adult sized socks)
For one pair of adult sized socks, you will need 2 balls of Scheepjes sock yarn. You can use either Scheepjes Invicta Extra, or the new Scheepjes Metropolis with 80 colours!! Get your yarn via Scheepjes retailers or via this webshop*:
2.25 mm Knitpro DPNs, depending on gauge
These socks are knit from the toe up, and the heels are German short row heels. I have instruction videos for the cast on and the heel on my Youtube Channel New Leaf Podcast, the links are included in the PDF.
This pattern is available in English and Dutch.
