PATTERN for Cosy Quilt Socks - Pattern only.

What better time to curl up with a comfortable, cosy project than the quiet winter (or summer) break. Whether it’s your Solstice cast on, your Christmas Eve cast on, your curl up in a blanket with a cocoa on a cold Winter’s night cast on. You can make it scrappy or with just 2 colours. There are 3 styles to choose from (I call them Beginner, Adventurous Beginner, and Looking for a Challenge).

Designed to be done in manageable little bite-sized pieces when you want to carve out about half an hour of quiet time, there’s a line of quilt sashing in between sections to help you keep track of blocks.

The perfect project to use up some of those stashed mini bits and bobs. These can be knit to any teen or adult size in fingering, sport, or DK weight yarn.

Sample shown is Legacy Fiber Artz fingering using Vanilla Bean and Winter’s Eve.

Measurements and gauges are included for a variety of yarn weights, needle sizes, and stitch counts. I have included 5 stitch counts at 4 different gauges to make it as easy as possible for you to get the exact fit you need.

Gauge for colourwork portion:
1) 38 sts x 40 rounds = 4” (10 cm) in colourwork on US1.5 (2.5 mm) needles (suitable for fingering weight).
2) 35 sts x 37 rounds = 4” (10 cm) in colourwork on US2 (2.75 mm) needles (suitable for fingering weight).
3) 28 sts x 30 rounds = 4” (10 cm) in colourwork on US2.5 (3 mm) needles (suitable for sport weight).
4) 22 sts x 30 rounds = 4” (10 cm) in colourwork on US4 (3.5 mm) needles (suitable for DK weight).

Yardage required: 250 - 425 yards depending on yarn, gauge, and size (stitch count).

Circumference: 5 1/4” to 16 3/8” depending on yarn, gauge, and size (stitch count).
Length: Customizable

The pattern is written as a cuff-down sock, with a short-row heel. It can be knit toe-up with the same heel if you already know how to cast on at the toe.

Heels, toes and cuffs FOR MY SAMPLE were done in fingering weight yarn on 2.25 mm needles. Colourwork was done on a 2.75 mm needle.

In my sock sample, I used a total of 308 yds of fingering weight yarn to fit a 9.5” foot, knitting the 70 stitch size.

Scraps and leftovers needed for each stripe range from 3 - 10 grams of each colour, per colourwork section depending on yarn weight and size you selected. Your yardage will vary depending on the gauge, needle size, and yarn you choose, as well as the finished sock size.

I have included light on dark AND dark on light charts for all three levels of complexity.

You can make your socks identical, or you can really have fun with colours and make them wild. You can keep to one colour palette or really let loose. You can even swap leftovers with friends for almost matching socks.
