Is there anything better than a stretchy sock that knits up incredibly quickly? We don’t think so! Introducing the Brioche for Brunch Socks by the talented Saysha Greene @insayshable.knits, featuring a Waffle Stitch created with half-brioche rib that is shockingly straightforward. (Really! One of our testers who had never knit a sock or done brioche before said “This feels too easy!!! Am I doing it right?” ). Featuring vivid colors from Less Traveled Yarn in Melon Mimosa and No Big Teal, you’ll want to knit these socks again and again.

If you’re new to sock knitting, we have you covered. Like every Knitrino project, we provide videos for every technique. You can also earn your Brioche for Brunch Badge, and join our Intro to Brioche Workshop on Zoom on Sunday, October 23 at 1pm EDT (GMT -4). Our kits are sold out, but you can pre-order your kit from our friends at Traveling Yarn.

Size and Fit: These socks are incredibly stretchy with just the right amount of slouchy, and most knitters won’t require modifications. For many people, more than 1 size may fit their foot. First time sock knitters should follow the pattern as written without modification.

Construction: These toe-up socks begin with a modified version of the Magic Cast On that prevents twisted stitches on the sole stitches. The socks are worked in the round one at a time using Magic Loop, though you can easily substitute your favorite sock method. The heel turn is worked back and forth on the base heel stitches in short rows. After this, the wrapped stitches are resolved, and the gusset stitches are decreased as a part of the heel flap.
