Oh, the love I have for the humble, plain sock. Simple socks are the true workhorse among all the knitted items: they keep our feet warm and happy no matter the weather, and you will always need a pair.

For the Oak Socks I have gathered all the good things a simple everyday sock needs: a good fit, a good range of sizes that are easy to alter and a yarn that feels as good as it looks.

Yarn: 1 (1, 1) skein of Earth by Life in the Long Grass, colorway Barn as MC, and 1 (1, 1) mini skein of Merino 4ply by Botanical Yarn, colorway Pampas Grass as CC. Approx. 380 (420) yards / 350 (385) meters of fingering weight yarn in MC and 30 (50) yards / 27 (45) meters of fingering weight yarn in CC.

Needles: US 1½ (2.5 mm) and US 0 (2 mm) dpns or circular needles, if you are using magic loop technique for small circumference knitting.

Finished Circumference of the Foot and of the Leg of the Sock: 7.5 (8.5, 9)” / 19 (21, 23.5) cm. Choose a size with 0-1” (0-2,5 cm) of negative ease.

34 sts and 46 rows = 4” (10 cm) of 3 X 1 rib stitch, using larger needles, after blocking.
