my first pair of thick knit socks



Much fidgiting went into this pattern, and these turned out to be just a teeny bit too big - my next pair I'll have to trim down the number of stitches I cast on by around 5 or so to make a more fitted sock. But these have been knit with a worsted weight, and are awesomely warm and cozy for my constantly cold feet!

They look great! I need to try making something similar. Is the pattern your own creation?

the pattern is only about 1/4 my own creation, I had to do a bit of fidgiting with stitches because the pattern I found was MUCH too big, despite my using the same tension yarn and same size needles.

I'm still in the process of adjusting the pattern to make the sock fit better, this pair, even though they fit, are just a teeny wee bit loose on my feet (and I have wide feet!) - it's almost like a slipper.

I'll be posting my new pattern soon!
