Sock knitting in Manos del Uruguay Yarns
People who do not knit may think of sock knitting as a quaint, classic pastime of knitters; those who do knit appreciate the time and effort that goes into creating a pair of socks. Whether you make them long in the leg or only up to your ankles, socks are a perfect project to pick up any time of year!
Fan Sock Projects in Alegria
Carinaariel used just 18 grams of yarn (approximately 80 yards) to knit these baby socks! Anakire’s Penne Minimum socks needed less than a third of a skein. Stash-bust your leftover Alegria into quick socks like these.
OneMoreRowStore’s Starry Starry Night Socks are high impact in black and white Alegria!
Socks in Alegria
Nicole Stuckless’ Coffee Date Socks start with a ribbed cuff with garter panels that flows smoothly down the leg of the sock. The coffee bean stitch makes a stretchy comfortable leg.
The Styx Socks, by Jane Ellison, are a quick ankle sock with a fun ridge detail. The designer notes, “I named them Styx because she was the mother of the Goddess Nike and I am going to wear my Styx socks in my trainers!”
The Bell Burnell sock pattern is a simple-to-knit, high-texture pattern made of knits and purls. Kristen Morgan’s design is in honor of Bell Burnell, an astrophysicist who supports female, minority, and refugee students studying physics.
Socks in Alegria Grande
First time sock knitters may find it easier to start a pair at a bigger gauge. Alegria Grande features the same easy-care blend of superwash merino and polyamide as our tremendously popular Alegria in a worsted weight base. Try it in either of these free patterns from Rooster Yarns, the Manos distributor in the UK: Cosy Socks by Tracey Goodwin and The Men’s Sofa Sock by Joanna Wood Paint.
