Milk Chocolate Socks

Want to give your feet a treat, but aren’t sure you have the patience to knit socks in 4-ply yarn? DK socks are the answer! They’re much quicker than 4-ply socks, but still fit inside your shoes. DK socks also make great gifts, and knitting in DK weight yarn also frees up more knitting time for you to knit something for yourself (maybe a pair of socks in your size!).

The Milk Chocolate Socks are knitted from the top down, with a heel-flap and gusset construction. They’re my basic DK socks, knitted in stocking stitch with a slipped stitch pattern on the heel flap.

The Milk Chocolate Socks are written in sizes to fit the whole family [ten sizes, in circumferences from 7.5 cm (3 in) to 28.5 cm (11.5 in)] – if you have an especially knitworthy family to knit for, you could make a full set of matching socks!

The socks are knitted in a wool blend DK with 25% nylon, which makes the yarn stronger and increases its lifespan. If you’re knitting for someone extra-special, why not see if your favourite indie dyer has a wool/nylon DK weight yarn that you could try as a treat to yourself?

Milk Chocolate Socks is the first pattern in my DK Selection-Box of Socks – a collection of DK socks, all named in honour of chocolates in a selection  box. Why not check out the other patterns in the collection too? I'll be releasing them over the next few months.


In keeping with the chocolate-treat theme of the collection, I've got something really special for newsletter subscribers: sign up to my newsletter to get the first pattern (Milk Chocolate Socks) for FREE, and the ebook for £10 (ends 11.59pm GMT, February 28th 2022).
