This is my third pair of socks knitted with 12" circular needles and I LOVE knitting socks.... something I NEVER thought I would say!
With this method, there are no techniques to "master", no videos to watch, no tips or tricks to learn. You don't have to fiddle with DPNS or try and remember which stitches are on which needle, etc. You don't have to worry about laddering, learning magic loop or knitting with two circular needles. Just cast on and knit your sock!
I can knit one of these socks in about two hours so I have a pair in an evening!
So many of you were interested in this quick, easy and fun way to knit socks that I took some time to write up the pattern for everyone who would like it here on KP.
These are designed for worsted weight, but my second pair was sport weight and they were equally as nice. You can also use sock weight by changing the numbers in the pattern to fit your needle and weight of yarn.
I typically wear short athletic socks and these are about the same weight but are so much prettier!
Village Sock Pattern
I added a Mock Cable stitch to the cuff and instep of this pair.
They are soooo pretty! I love my knitted socks!
I think I need to take a break from knitting and give my legs a shave! Giggle, giggle.
These are the type of socks I normally wear.... not any more. My new Village socks are the same weight, but soooo much prettier and nicer to wear!
I buy this product at the hardware store and spray the bottoms of my slippers and socks. I broke my neck once and don't want a repeat. This is invisible... adds just enough "grip" to your soles and your socks and slippers wear much longer!
Thank you! Great pattern! What size needle would you recommend for the DK weight socks? Or would you increase the number of stitches?
Oh man, those are gorgeous. I might just actually start wearing socks again if I had a few pairs of those!
Thanks so much! I printed as I really need to master socks. Made one pair just to see what it was all about but need to become proficient at it.
This seems like a really good pattern. Yours are beautiful! Knitting perfect and color selection superb.
You are one productive lady!
This is my third pair of socks knitted with 12&quo... (
Thank you Amy!!

Thank you so much for your pattern..have printed it out-will start a par this evening!

Thanks again!! Sandra
Thank you for the pattern. You are an inspiration. I need to go back to making socks.
Those are lovely, Amy. I wear my handmade socks with pride, too. I'm using the magic loop method right now for socks made with sockweight. There is always a sock on the needles now. You'll never turn back either. Socks are functional, especially warm, fairly fast to make, and the color and pattern possibilities are endless. Welcome and thanks for the pattern.
Your socks are stunning!!!!!! Thank you for the tip about putting a product on the bottom to stop from slipping! Ingenious!!!!!
Amy, you are incredible!!! Those socks are gorgeous and PERFECT. I have never seen anyone with more determination to do something well than you. You deserve a standing ovation.
Gorgeous work Amy! I love love love the mock cable!
Beautiful as aways thanks for sharing the pattern.
