Description

The Simply Curious Socks pattern was designed to help everyone relish the life-long joy of sock knitting. This basic but highly detailed pattern will walk you through each part of the sock’s anatomy: a ribbed cuff, straightforward heel flap and gusset construction, and rounded toe. The sweet simplicity of the Simply Curious Socks gentle pattern means that it suits any sock yarn that captures your heart. Solids, tonals, speckles, self-striping, wild variegation: choose a skein that sings to you and run with it.

What a comfort. It might be just a simple pair of socks, but when you’ve made them yourself, they are full of meaning. Warmth. Nurture. Contentment. It’s the magic of handmade, the way something as ordinary and as humble as a pair of socks can become something precious.

Curious about sock knitting but not sure how to get started? You’re not alone! Many knitters have told me that they want to learn how to make their own socks but find the process intimidating. Well, take a deep breath and find yourself an irresistible skein of sock yarn, because today’s the day, and these are the socks to get you started.
