not knitting patterns, so forgive me for giving you
what I use to make these socks, and you can adjust it
to what you need to duplicate it.
I knit these
tube socks out of undyed 100% wool for my husband….He
loves them, and always enjoys getting a new pair.
When his socks gets a hole I repair it with scraps of
the same wool, weaving across the hole in two directions
(I place a small glass in the sock to mend over).
Doing this makes his socks last a long time...but the
best part is, when he finally wants to be done with
an older pair, he can compost them...because they are
Amount of Wool Required: 1½ skeins [4 oz. skeins,
2 ply, 210 yards]
Needles: 3¾ mm (5) [both long and short double
Marker (small ring or loop of thread)
Yarn Needle: For finishing the socks.
Tip: I use
half of a cork to place over the point of my needles,
between knitting, to keep the stitches on my needles.

each sock cast on 48 sts.
Repeat this single ribbing for 6".
1: *K1, P1*, repeat 12 times, place a marker and then
Row 2: Purl 24, *K1, P1*, repeat 12 times.
1: Purl 24, place a marker and then *K1, P1*, repeat
Row 2: *K1, P1*, repeat 12 times, knit 24.
Rows 1 and 2 until your sock is 16" long total
(6" leg + 10" heel/foot).
1: *K1, slip 1, K1, pass slipped stitch over, knit until
three stitches before the marker, K2 together, K1*,
repeat, including K2 together, K1 three stitches before
the end of the row.
Row 2: Purl across.
Rows 1 and 2 until there are 12 stitches on either side
of the marker.
Purl the last row onto your shorter double pointed needles
(12 sts on each needle).
the sock in half with the toe stitches lining up.

Cut the wool off the ball, leaving about a yard long
tail to stitch with, to finish your sock.
the tail of wool into your yarn needle.
With the remaining stitches lined up, one needle on
top of the other, stitch down into the first stitch
on the bottom needle as if to knit, go up into the first
stitch on top as if to purl. *Go back down to the first
stitch on the bottom needle, going through it as if
to knit and take this stitch off the needle. Move over
to the next stitch, beside the stitch you just removed,
and go up through it as if to purl, leaving it on the
needle, and continuing up to the top needle, going through
the first stitch as if to purl, then taking this stitch
off the needle. Move over to the next stitch, beside
the stich you just removed, and go down through it as
if to knit, leaving it on the needle*.
Repeat from * to * until all the stitches are off the
the side seams of the sock together with the remaining
yarn, and weave the end into the sides.
