Three Sirens Socks

Available on:




Do you have single skeins of sock yarn in your stash that are looking for the perfect pattern? You’ve found it with the Three Sirens Socks! The Three Sirens Socks pattern works well in all yarns, whether variegated, semi-solid, solid or speckled! Dig out on of your golden skeins, and cast on!

The Three Sirens Socks look impressive, but the cable is intuitive and flows seamlessly from the cuff. Even better, the pattern is simple enough to knit while watching TV, or while waiting for your kids to finish their swimming lesson. The cable uses slipped stitches to make it pop against the reverse stocking stitch background without getting lost. If you can knit a vanilla sock, you can knit these!

As ever, the pattern comes in lots of sizes [15-28 cm (6-11 in) circumference], so you choose the perfect size to fit your feet, or you could make them for your whole family!

The socks feature my favourite type of toe: the Barn toe. The toe decreases slower, then faster to create a slightly pointed shape that is finished by gathering the live sts – no need to look up how to do Kitchener stitch (again!). If you haven’t tried it before, give it a go, you might just like it!


Sizes: A (B, C // D, E, F)

Finished sock circumference: 15 (18, 20.5 // 23, 25.5, 28) cm [6 (7, 8 // 9, 10, 11) in]

For the best fit, choose a size that is approximately 10-15% smaller than the circumference of your foot, measured around the ball of your foot. For adults this is approximately 1 in.


32 sts and 44 rnds = 10 cm (4 in) in stocking stitch worked in the round on 2.5 mm (US 1.5) needles after wet blocking, or size needed to obtain correct tension.


170 (235, 310 // 390, 475, 550) m [190 (260, 340 // 430, 520, 605) yds] of 4ply-weight yarn (yardages are approximate as the amount of yarn used will depend on the length of the foot, which is adjustable).

I would recommend using a dedicated sock yarn that is tightly plied wool and has some nylon content for durability.
