These are my first socks and wanted to share the pattern with beginner sock knitters. Adrienne Lu has created a wonderful free knitting pattern with definition and easy skill level. Knit, purl, and skyp, which is slip, knit, yarnover, slip slipped stitch over the knit and yarnover stitches, is all you need to know. Even turning the heel is a cinch. Sock knitting is easy to travel with whether vacationing or commuting to work.
You’ll be glad you learned to knit socks with this Simple Skyp Sock free beginner knitting pattern.
I used one skein of 90% Merino 10% nylon sock yarn on size 2 dpn (doublepoint needles) and had bits left over, even with a mens size 11 sock at finish.
