Intermediate - This pattern is for those who feel comfortable with knitting and have made a few projects, using various skills and techniques. Experience in making socks is helpful, but not required. Concepts include working in the round, picking up and knitting stitches, ssk and ssp, k2tog decreases, and Kitchener stitch.
Notes from the Designer:
A short time ago, I moved to a very cold city in Saudi Arabia, and I wanted socks that were comfortable to wear and also fun for the eyes. I designed this sock to wear at home. I wanted them to be light, stretchy, and easy to move around in. I have been blessed to have four children. The eldest is seven years old; the second is six years old. The third and fourth are one-year-old twins. With remote learning, I have to be by their side all the time. The children love to bring their toys and games into the living room where I am knitting. These socks offered extra padding when I accidentally stepped on the toy and game pieces that have been left out.
I love this basic stitch pattern because it is easy, and I can knit it any time, especially when my children are in the room. Since I started wearing these socks around the house, I have put away my shoes in the closet. I hope that when you make these socks, they will help you feel relaxed and at home, too.
This pattern is written for any method of knitting in the round. I advise breaking up the top and back stitches as shown in Round 1 of the Cuff instructions. This will place one purl stitch at either side of the pattern on top of the foot, which helps to hide any laddering. It also ensures you will not have to move stitches when decreasing. If working on DPNs, you can break each of those two portions again, as desired.
Stitches are not broken evenly in half. Where applicable, totals are shown as front/back.
The socks are worked from the cuff down.
Be sure to measure your gauge in the round.
You may find it helpful to use different stitch markers for the BOR and m2 positions to easily decipher which is which, as you work the ribbing.
There are different instructions for the R and L socks at the beginning of the toe decreases. Each will have less slant on the side of the big toe and a greater slant on the opposite side.
Pay close attention whenever decreasing. It is very important to maintain the ssk, ssp, and k2tog exactly where instructed.
Listed yardage is for socks worked as written, with no modifications.
Yardage total: S - 290 yards, M - 335 yards, and L - 390 yards.
The sample shown was made 0.5” shorter in foot length in size S to accommodate a US women’s size 5.5 foot. It used 279 yds.

I was so delighted on how easy the pattern was to follow. I've never made socks before so I started with itchy wool so I wouldn't ruin the beautiful Resilience Sock Yarn I bought but I could've started with it. So glad I got over my fear of making socks!!
