Looking for super-cozy socks? The Spinnaker socks might be just what you're after!

I have not one, but two, new patterns in latest issue of Knit Now, which is in stores today.


Knitted in sport-DK weight, these socks are a lovely quick gift knit, or you could whip some up for yourself to wear by the fireside.

The pattern on the socks is created using simple slipped-stitch and garter stitch on a stocking stitch background. The stitches create little triangles that make me think of sails, so I named these socks after the Spinnaker Tower in Southampton, which is designed to look like a sail.

The socks are knitted from the top down with a slipped stitch heel flap, a Dutch (round) heel turn and a traditional gusset.

The socks are knitted in Noro Silk Garden Sock Solo,* which is lovely and cosy, with a slightly rustic slubby texture. If you want to use something a bit smoother, try a DK weight wool/nylon blend sock yarn instead.

The pattern is available in issue 110 of Knit Now, which is available now. If you live outside the U.K., or can’t find a copy can buy one online, or you can purchase a digital edition.

Want to queue or favourite the pattern on Ravelry? The pattern page can be found here.

Check back tomorrow to find out what the second pattern is...**
