Beautiful and essential basic socks for your knitting collections!

Actually knitted socks is one of the most precious presents you can give to your friends and relatives. Compared to large garments, socks are quite easy and fast to knit. It is much easier than you normally think~

In this pattern I write knitting basic socks with 3 different knitting tools. 

They are magic loop/dpns/HiyaHiya Flyers

All of them can for sure be used to knit socks.

Each of them have their own pros and cons. 

Find your most comfortable tools to knit your lovely socks. 


Yarn: Manos Del Uruguay Alegria 【fingering weight 】  
75% wool/ 25% polyamide / 100g/ 445yds/ 425mts    

Needle size :  HiyaHiya 2.5mm and 2.75mm Flyers/ 15cm dpns/ 80cm interchangeble needles 
They are smooth and quite flexible when knitting in the round for sock circumstances. 

Finished size:  average adult medium  36/37 and 38/39 

36/37 and 38/39 are European shoe size. 
36/37 is for approx. foot circumference 20cm/ 8 inches. 
38/39 is for approx. 22cm/ 8.5inches. 
Please see the chart included in the pattern for size conversion. 

Gauge: 32 sts and 44 rows with 2.75 mm in stockinette stitches. 

Tips for choosing the  size: my shoe size is 37 and my actual foot circumference is 20.5cm/ 8⅕. 
If I choose to cast on 56 sts , my finished sock foot circumference will be 17.5cm /7inches which has 3cm/1⅕ inches  negative ease. 
In this case, my finished sock is snug fit.  If I  choose not to include negative ease in my sock, I will go for 64 sts when casting on. 
It will result in a sock with foot circumference at 20cm/ 8inches which is almost as wide as my actual foot. 

Of course, if your foot circumference  is wider than 20cm/8inches , casting on 64 sts will bring you a sock with a little bit negative ease. Hope this info can help you out about which size to choose.
