Addicted to the Knit
Psalm 139:13b YOU knit me together in my mother's womb.
Hi Becka, I'm dying to start these! But I have two questions first.I want to use some gorgeous Tofutsies yarn that I've got, but I've only 100g. That's usually enough for a pair of socks, but you say 150g. Is this pattern specially heavy on yarn? I won't be able to get another skien of the same dye lot, so if 100g is not enough, I'll have to compromise somehow. Maybe I could adjust and do them toe-up?Secondly, the pattern says I need two sizes of needles - I presume the smaller ones for the rib, then change to the large size?Thanks!Ellen Rose
Oh my, forgive me for not stating the needle change in the pattern, I will make that change today! Yes, the smaller needles are for the ribbing and the larger for the rest of the sock.Yes, Rose, this is a long leg pattern and since it's knit for a man and it's a larger circumference it does require 150 grams of yarn. You can certainly change to toe up, you will have a better guide about running out of yarn and with this st. pattern it won't change that much. Thank you very much to bringing the needles to my attention, I will fix that now!
Pattern has been updated. Thanks again, Ellen Rose bringing this to may attention!
I am late to this game but have been searching for a sock pattern to make for my husband. This is the one I keep coming back to!! Just bought the yarn today...I'll take pics when I'm finished. Thanks so much for publishing and sharing!
I'm so happy that you enjoy the pattern, thanks for sharing!God bless,becka
This is PERFECT, I was looking for a man's pattern. Thanks for another awesome and free pattern!
I made these for my son with gray yarn and the targets in red. He loves these and I really enjoyed working with your pattern. When I look for sock patterns for the men in my life you are the first place I look.Thank you for sharing with us - who can't write patterns;-)
Cotton socks for men are considered more suitable for day to day use. In comparison to the ones made from wool, they are cooler. So, they have a better capacity to insulate heat.
