Nothing keeps your feet warm on a camping trip like heavy wool socks! This design adds interest to an often utilitarian heavy weight sock by incorporating a garter panel with traveling cable on the outside of each ribbed leg.
Briggs and Little Tuffy is the perfect yarn for socks that will see heavy duty – it wears like iron! You will need 2 skeins for all but the small size knit for a small foot length. Please note that if you plan on substituting another yarn, the Tuffy is a very heavy worsted – Ravelry lists it as an aran weight. The gauge measured over 4 inches is 18 sts and 29 rows worked in stockinette stitch in the round. These socks knit up very quickly!
The pattern directions are written for a cuff down sock knit on 4 double point needles. The directions for the traveling stitch leg and foot patterns are given in both written and charted form. Sizes are Sizes: S (M, L, XL), to fit foot circumferences of 8 (9, 10, 11) in/ 20.5 (23, 25.5, 28) cm with negative ease to fit snuggly. If you prefer a wide toe, alternate directions for toe decreases for this pattern can be found on this website under “Support”.
This pattern, like all patterns by Knitwise Design, has been test knit and professionally tech edited to be clear and free of errors.
