Looking for a shoe size 13 sock pattern for men.
Have you a particular pattern? Using Red Heart Worsted and 2.75mm (US size?) pair of circulars it takes 420 yards per pair for ankle-length.

I have one I've worked up...but below you will see the basic calculations. I do short-row heels and toes.

Let's see.............

This site shows very colorful ones (of course, you could always just do one color) for size 12 or so

Reading down this forum shows several different patterns

And this one seems to be the winner

Good luck,

If you look at the last PDF link...the 420 I quoted is right on the money. Simply cast on double the number called for +1. Slip the +1 purlwise onto your working needle tip. Stitch 2 together (whatever the first stitch of ribbing is supposed to be), PSSO. Now Stitch 2 together in pattern till you get back to the beginning side again. You will now have a stretchier cuff. Continue knitting and purling in cuff pattern for the needed length, follow the rest of the pattern as written.
