Basic Socks Project - Regia 4-ply Version

"Cozy feet are happy feet."

While we love some of the more complicated sock patterns out there, we return again and again to our Basic Socks. It's a favorite "gateway" pattern: once you understand basic sock construction, you'll be better equipped to try more complex ones.

Regia 4-Ply is perfect for the fingering-weight version of our Basic Socks. The manufacturer promises that your socks will keep their shape, wear well, and machine wash and dry without felting. We guarantee you'll love the available colors–we've even got several new shades for your sock drawer.

Blogger Knitting Sarah has been using our Basic Sock pattern for her current Sock Knitalong. Check out her great tutorial on blocking socks, which is an important last step for perfecting the sock's shape, evening up stitches and allowing the yarn fibers to soften and "bloom."

Our Sock Blockers make blocking easy, fast and convenient by improving airflow through the fibers. Sold in pairs, they come in three sizes for children, women and men.

You can pick up the pattern and all the fabulous colors below (you'll need 2 skeins for one pair of socks), or go to Regia 4-ply for more information about the yarn.
