The Design

“Amble along in these comfy socks!”

We love knitting socks from the toe up—it lets you use every last inch of yarn! And knitting the heels in afterwards (or as an ‘afterthought’) means that it’s easy to add a zippy contrast color. Or replace later if they wear out! Whether you choose to knit them in one color, with a contrasting toe and heel, in stockinette or with ribbing, they’re sure to make your toes happy!

We knit this pair of Simple Toe-Up Socks in two colors of Amble, from The Fibre Co. Designed especially for sock knitting, Amble is a fingering-weight blend of merino wool, suri alpaca, and recycled nylon. An eco-friendly, anti-shrinkage treatment results in a soft, durable, washable yarn that’s perfect for socks!
