This classic pattern has been adapted for a worsted weight yarn!
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 worsted-weight adaptation to our Basic Sock pattern to knit them in brilliant, bouncy Manos Alegria Grande. A blend of superwash merino and sturdy polyamide, it’s resilient and super soft—perfect for warming your toes around the house!
