GAUTE – Heel-less Spiral Sock.

(3 customer reviews)


Gaute is knitted toe-up, on the round, is called a “spiral sock” in Norway and is the perfect sock to knit if you do not want to turn a heel, as this is a heel-less sock. Just knit your desired length and that’s pretty much it!

Super Easy!!

    I’m in the middle of making my first sock like this and It’s very fun to make. Thanks for the clear directions. I enjoy using your patterns.

    I have knitted lots of socks but thought i would give this pattern a go. I finished the first sock tried it on & was amazed at how comfortable this sock is to wear. I wore it around the house while i cast on the 2nd sock. well written pattern & gives a nice looking sock.

    I have always wanted to knit socks. I finally (after 2 decades) learned to knit this year (2019) and I find the heels to be kind of intimidating, and time consuming, since I am still a newbie.
    I wanted to be able to make warm socks for the family this year but didn’t think it would be possible. Once I saw this pattern or Arne & Carlos’ YouTube channel, I immediately went and purchased it! It is well written (like all of their patterns) and easy to follow. I find this would be a perfect beginner sock as it is essentially a spiral tube sock. It stretches to conform perfectly to your foot, so if you have odd shaped feet , these are a must!
