- step-by-step instructions
- in-depth instruction for the heel
Materials you need at home:
- sock yarn in different colors (abou 100 g in total)
- DPNs (2.5 mm)
- tapestry needle
These scrappy socks are the perfect project to use up leftover scraps that are too pretty to throw away. You can even knit these socks in a solid color to make the different designs more visible. The heel is a classic heel with a heel flap and a gusset and the toe is a wedge toe. I chose a slip stitch rib for the heel flap to add a bit of texture and to make the heel more durable.
Gauge: 30 stitches and 40 rows to 10 cm
To knit one pair of socks you will need sock yarn (4-ply) in different colors (I chose 10 scraps, each about 10 g).
The pattern is written for shoe sizes 22-47 (EU).
The pattern calls for DPNs in 2.5 mm, but you can also use the Magic loop technique.
The pattern includes step-by-step instructions for the heel and toe and charts for the designs.

My name is Hilke and I am a knitter from Aachen, who loves to sew. Haalu has already been around since June 2013. First I sold handmade purses, pencil cases or mobile phone cases on Dawanda, simply because I didn't need as much stuff as I was making. :) Some time ago I have started writing my own sewing and knitting ebooks to help others find their own enjoyment in crafting.
