Sock Yarn

Sock Yarn

Sock knitting is SO addictive.  There are lots of brilliant yarns that make classic adult to funky kids socks.  One 100g ball or two 50g makes an adult pair.
Sock yarn is generally 75% superwash wool/25% nylon (for durability).

You can use DPNs (double point needles) or circulars (25cm or a long cable for Magic Loop).

here for a basic 'vanilla' tutorial and pattern from the fabulous Winwick Mum to get you underway.  And if you become as addicted as we are here at Treacle, Winwick Mum has a brilliant, super friendly and supportive Facebook Group you can join.
