The Dotty Bed Socks are a quick knit from the cuff down with worsted weight yarn. The Dotty slip stitch pattern uses only one color per round, and the carried floats across the back add an extra layer of warmth and cushiness.

At the gusset, the top of the instep can be worked in either the Dotty stitch, or a two row stripe pattern. You can use magic loop, two circulars, or double pointed needles to knit these socks.

Choose your size by foot circumference; you can make the cuff and foot as long or short as needed.

Thanks to tech editor Meaghan Schmaltz, and test knitters Ann Berg, Rebecca Deen, Lindsey Maher, Jill Monier, Blythe Polreis, Melissa Rowe, and Rorie Solberg.
