Simple Toe-Up Socks - Ultra Alpaca Fine Version

Simple Toe-Up Socks - Ultra Alpaca Fine Version

"Luxurious and durable."

We love knitting socks from the toe up – it lets you use every last inch of yarn! And knitting the heels in afterwards means that they are easy to replace later if they wear out.

We love the extra little touch of alpaca in Berroco's fingering-weight version of Ultra Alpaca – it adds that little bit of softness to an otherwise rugged sock yarn!

You can pick up the pattern and all the fabulous colors below (you'll need 1 skein for one pair of women's socks, while larger men's sizes will likely take an extra skein). 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.

YARN
1 skein Berroco Ultra Alpaca Fine (433 yds/400m each). (Shown here in colors 1207 (grey) and 1281 (red); 1 skein each). Or approx. 375 yds/343m of an equivalent fingering-weight sock yarn (includes approx. 85 yds/78m for contrasting heel and toe, if desired). Larger men's shoe sizes might require an extra skein, especially if longer cuffs are desired.

1yd/m smooth waste yarn in same weight, contrasting color, to place heel.
