The “I’m Too Socksy” Pattern: An Easy Project for Confident Beginners

Looking for a straightforward knitting project with a bit of flair? Look no further than the “I’m Too Socksy” pattern. This design incorporates yarn overs and a central decrease to create an eye-catching pattern that flows beautifully.
The pattern is available in seven sizes, finished foot circumferences from 16.25 cm (6.5 in) to 23.75 cm (10 in).

Any 4-ply yarn can be used, but self-striping yarn with a contrasting cuff, heel, and toe works best.
For the sample shown, West Yorkshire Spinners’ Signature 4-ply in the Blue Lagoon and Bubblegum shades were used.
