Knitted Lime Green Winter Socks

Two 100 gramm skeins were used to make this pair of socks. They are extra thick for the winter to wear around the home. The weight of the finished socks is about 87 grams so the two skeins should actually be enough for a second pair as well.

Sock yarn can be so pretty because of the patterns the yarn creates. This particular color is lighter and looks quite cheerful.

For this project you will need:

- 2 skeins of same fingering weight sock yarn (The yarn used was about 420 meters/100 g skein)
- a set of 5 double pointed metric size 3.5, 3.75 or 4 knitting needles (depending on your knitting gauge)
  (US 4, 5 or 6, UK /, 9 or 8) that are 15 centimeters or 6 inches long
- ruler to measure length
- scissors
- large eye needle for sewing threads when finished

These socks are easy to make but experience with knitting with 5 needles is recommended to make this project. These socks were knitted in a ribbing (cuff) and stockinette (sock) stitches to keep the project simple.

Knitting gauge: (measured using the stockinette stitch, 20 stitches and about 30 rows = 10 centimeters or approximately 4 inches.

Illustrated Craft Tutorial - How to Knit Socks


The illustrated knitting tutorial shows you the steps to knitting exactly these socks.

The technique for knitting for socks is basically the same for any size you choose to knit. The amount of stitches to cast on and also the length of the foot will vary depending on which size you are knitting for. This particular pair of socks was knitted with sock yarn and the yarn was doubled throughout the whole knitting process.

Because of the amount of images used to create this tutorial, the tutorial is broken down into two parts. The first page covers the sock from the cuff to the heel and the second page covers the sock from the gusset to the toe.
