Basic Socks Using Brooklyn Tweed Shelter

Basic Socks Using Brooklyn Tweed Shelter

"Basic 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 adaption to our Basic Socks pattern to knit them in woolly, worsted-weight Brooklyn Tweed Shelter. Though these socks won’t stand up to any hiking trips, they’re perfect for warming your toes around the house. This fiber, spun from Wyoming-grown Targhee-Columbia fleece, has a characteristic lofty spring and beautiful stitch definition—and makes a wonderful pair of thick, toasty-warm socks.

You can pick up the pattern and a fabulous color below (you'll need 2 skeins for one pair of socks), or go to Brooklyn Tweed Shelter for all of the available colors. If you already own the Basic Socks pattern, click on the Free Adaptation tab to see the modifications for using worsted-weight Brooklyn Tweed Shelter.
