The Design

"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.
