What Makes Us Unique 

Exclusive, custom-made, luxurious yarn bases.

Rich, unique colorways for eye-catching projects.

Inspired yarn and patterns created to spark joy.


This pattern is designed for use with 1-2 skeins of Superwash Dewy Dk yarn; shown in colorway: Cypress.

SIZES : S (M, L); approximately 7" (7.75", 8.5") leg circumference, blocked and unstretched. Approximately 10" long from cuff to heel, if knit according to the pattern. Leg length and foot length are adjustable. Shown in size S. 

Sample shown used nearly all of 1 skein (100g out of 115g) of the suggested yarn, and was knit for a US women's size 5.5 foot. If you are knitting for a larger foot or wish to knit a taller sock, you will need 2 skeins of yarn to complete this pattern. Please be sure to purchase sufficient yarn for this project.

NEEDLES: US Size 5 (3.75 mm) needles: DPNs, 9" circular, or long circular for Magic Loop, depending on your preference.

Notes From the Designer:

•Want to try your hand at socks without those tiny needles? These socks are worked on a larger needle with heavier weight yarn, so they knit up fast with fewer stitches. You can knock out your first sock over a couple of nights of TV knitting!
•This pattern is worked in the round from the cuff down to the toe, with a heel flap and gusset. A simple texture pattern breaks up the monotony of Stockinette stitch and adds a focal point to the front and back of the sock.
•Pattern is needle-agnostic, so you can use your preferred method of sock knitting: DPNs, 9" circular, 2 circulars, or a long circular for Magic Loop. Use whichever method makes you comfortable!
•I was always the square peg trying to fit in a round hole. At least, until I grew comfortable enough with myself to do things my own way. I realized that there are a lot of us out there trying to make our own paths instead of following standard conventions. This pattern is for all the square pegs out there; keep doing your own thing! Create your own conventions, forge your own path, and don't be afraid to wear your heart on your sleeve (or your square on your socks)!
