When we added a DK merino and nylon yarn to the shop I knew that I wanted a sock pattern to go with it – something quick and simple which would lend itself to speedy well fitting socks.
I can vouch for the speedy – my lovely test knitter Jane produced a pair of these in 24 hours.
The ribbed pattern means these socks fit well and have lots of stretch – so there’s one size which will fit almost any adult (and that makes the instructions even easier to follow)
I got my socks out of 83 grams of yarn – so for size 7 feet or smaller one skein will be plenty. Larger feet will need a second skein (or you could work the toes in another DK yarn or two strands of sock yarn)
