Simple Toe-Up Socks - Arne & Carlos Version

"Self-patterning fun!"

We love knitting socks from the toe up – it lets you use every last inch of yarn! And knitting the heels in afterwards allows you to use self-striping yarns (like the famous Arne & Carlos colorways shown here) without breaking up the pattern. Plus the heels and toes are easy to replace when they wear out – which will take quite a while, given the rugged durability of Regia 4-ply.

The manufacturer promises that your socks will keep their shape, wear well, and machine wash and dry without felting. All of that goodness, in addition to playful designs and colors? Yes, please!

You can pick up the pattern and all the fabulous colors below (you'll need 1 skein for a pair of socks). Best news about toe-up socks is no more playing 'yarn chicken,' worrying about running out of yarn! Just knit the foot and up the cuff until you've used up half your yarn, then cast on for the second sock and relax.

FINISHED SIZE
Medium-width adult: Up to 10"/25cm foot on 8"/20cm cuff. For a longer foot, knit a shorter cuff–or purchase more yarn.

Larger men's shoe sizes might require a second skein, especially if longer cuffs are desired.
