Description

**This listing is for a KNITTING PATTERN ONLY. Not a finished pair of socks, not yarn in any form. Just the pattern to knit a pair for your very own.**

These socks are a breeze to knit, and a great first project if you’re learning to untangle cables for yourself.

It’s Socks Gone Wild - rustic, basic-cabled socks push the envelope by being worked from odd bits of yarn in screaming colours. Who says that Gentlemen’s socks have to be plain all the time? There are Gentlemen among us who crave socks…of a different stripe. These ones are for them.

Please note that the socks can be worked in as many - or as few - colours as you’d like to make them. There is nothing wrong with making these with only one colour of yarn!

Please also note that to cut down on ends to sew in - and to add to the rustic aspect of the socks - that all the bits of yarn were cut randomly and splice-felted together prior to knitting. Working from a “magic ball” like this is terribly exciting - one never knows what will happen next!

The pattern is a clear, concise, 4-page .pdf file with large charts and images.

Size: Gentlemen’s Large (or any foot/leg that is 9-10” in circumference.) These socks are very forgiving. They are easily sized down by changing yarn weight and needle size.


Gauge: 7 stitches = 1 inch (2.5 cm) in Stockinette stitch.

Yarn: 130 grams of DK weight yarn (approximately 300 yards / 274 metres) total, in one, a few or many, many colours.

Needles: One set of five (5) double pointed needles in US 4 (3.75 mm) or size necessary to obtain gauge.

Notions: A stitch marker to mark beginning of round (optional,) a cable needle (also optional) and a tapestry needle.

I bought this for a friend, and I am thrilled with it (as I know she will be). It is beautifully stitched and constructed. The seller was so thoughtful and helpful. Thank you so much for a perfect and flawless transaction.

Returns & exchanges

As the nature of some of my products are digital, I regret that I am unable to offer refunds on any purchases of these items.

PLEASE read my listings carefully - they are for KNITTING PATTERNS ONLY. If you complete a transaction thinking you are getting a pair of hand knitted mittens for $6 USD you are mistaken. In such a case refunds will not be offered. Caveat emptor.
