The Design

"Bright house socks!"

Our mothers (and their mothers) knew this sock by heart—its vertical heel flap, turned heel, picked-up gussets, and grafted toe. For many of us, it’s the first sock we learned and we return again and again to this straightforward, comfy basic. Once you understand its simple structure, improvise to your heart’s content!

We designed a free worsted-weight adaptation to our Basic Sock pattern to knit them in brilliant, bouncy Manos Alegria Grande. A blend of superwash merino and sturdy polyamide, it’s resilient and super soft—perfect for warming your toes around the house!

You can pick up the pattern and a fabulous color below (you'll need just 1 skein for one pair of socks), or go to Manos Alegria Grande to find out more about the yarn. If you already own the Basic Socks pattern, click on the Free Adaptation to see the modifications for using worsted-weight yarn.
