Comfort Socks Set

HeartStrings knitting pattern #KH03

The Comfort Socks Set pattern presents coordinated designs for a set of soft comfortable socks designed with the men in your life in mind - one pair for lounging comfort and one for everyday out-and-about wear.

Now add the heartfelt touch of hand-knit to fit, and this becomes a special gift from you to a loved one. Even the quietest and least expressive of guys is showing you his appreciation when he wears the socks you made.

The Comfort Socks Set coordinates with Norwegian Braid Hat for a great wardrobe enhancer or gift.

At-home Comfort socks (shown to left in photo) have a dressy band of Norwegian Braid and Bohus Pearls on the leg. The companion On-the-go Comfort socks (right) have a coordinating single Norwegian Braid. On both socks, the comfy ribbing is carried down the foot, ending with a simple toe closure (no Kitchener stitch!). Detail of braided stitch patterns on the upper legs of the socks.

The main yarn used for At-home Comfort is a luxury fiber. This pair of socks in the set is not intended to be a hard-wearing or work sock, but rather a soft comfortable sock for relaxation or to provide warmth for the ailing. The main yarn for On-the-go Comfort is a sturdier practical yarn for enhanced wear. The main yarn in each pair is used as the accent yarn in the other pair.

Men's S(M,L,XL). Sport/DK weight yarn as follows - Luxury yarn (L): 275[315,365,420] yards for main yarn in At-home and 6 yards for accent yarn in On-the-go. Practical yarn (P): 285[325,375,430] yards for main yarn in On-the-go and 30 yards for accent yarn in At-home. US 2 needles or size to get gauge of 6½ stitches/inch; set of needles one size larger. Written stitch instructions.

Socks shown in Haneke Exotics baby alpaca/linen/merino color burgundy and Heirloom Easycare 8 superwash merino silver gray #797.
