Today, we are showing you the easiest sock pattern in the world. It is really easy to knit a sock this way and knitting from the toe up, means you can also tailor the sock to your own foot. Watch our tutorial here:
Here is the pattern for the easiest sock in the world:
Needles: 1 sets of 5 dpns. 2,5 mm or 3 mm
Yarns: 100 grams of the Regia Design Line by Arne&Carlos, upt to now we’ve designed 3 editions and there are 18 colourways available. We used “Summernight” in the tutorial.
Get our yarn here.
50 grams or Regia sock yarn in a solid colour, like the green that we’ve used.
Start on the toe:
Cast on 16 sts on a dpn US 2.5 / 3 mm. Divide these sts over 4 dpns = 4 sts per ndl.
Rnd 1: Knit 16.
Inc in the sides:
Rnd 2: K1, inc 1, k6, inc 1, k2, inc 1, k6, inc 1, k1.
Rnd 3: knit 20
Rnd 4: K1, inc 1, k8, inc 1, k2, inc 1, k8, inc 1, k1.
Rnd 5: knit 24
Continue knitting around with inc 4 on every second round. Stop inc when you have the width that matches your foot.
Our foot size is 42 and we need a total of 16 sts on each needle.
Knit up to the heel, check on your foot while you’re working.
When the sock is up to where your heal starts, knit a bit of yarn in a contrasting colour on to needle 1 and 2.
Check with the toe that the yarn on the two needles is correct according to the toe. The thread has to be on the needles in between the lines from inc on the toe.
Knit the sock as long as you like it and finish the sock with a rib of ( k2, p2) at the hem.
Put the sts from the yarn in contrasting colour at the heel over on 4 dpn = ex 16 sts on each.
Knit around with decreasing in the sides according to the decreasing on the toe on every second round.
Rnd 1: k64
Rnd 2: k1, k2tog, k26, k2tog, k2, k2tog, k26, k2tog, k1.
Rnd 3: k 60
Rnd 4: k1, k2tog, k24, k2tog, k2, k2tog, k24, k2tog, k1.
Rnd 5: k 56
Rnd 6: k1, k2tog, k22, k2tog, k2, k2tog, k22, k2tog, k1.
Rnd 7: k 52
Continue decreasing on every second rnd until there are 4 sts left on each dpn.
Sew the tip of the toe and the tip of the heel, weave in the ends and block the sock, but don’t block the ribbing.
Tips: If you want to get the exact same pattern in both socks, be sure to start in a place where you have a clear and obvious change of colours and make sure you remember where you started by leaving a long thread that you can get back to and check, for the second sock. And, make sure you don’t sew the tip of the toe until on your first sock you’ve started on your second sock, as you’ll need to use your first sock to find the same pattern for the second one.
Enjoy you sock knitting, until next week!
