Choose a Size
Last Step Before We Knit: Measure Your Feet and Choose What Size Sock to Knit
To know which size socks to make, use a tape measure and measure around the widest part (the ball) of your foot.
Our worsted-weight pattern offers two sizes: Small-Medium (to fit a 7-8-inch foot circumference) and Medium-Large (to fit an 8-9-inch foot circumference).
Our fingering-weight pattern offers three sizes: Small (to fit a 7-inch foot circumference), Medium (to fit an 8-inch foot circumference) and Large (to fit a 9-inch foot circumference).
If your foot is smaller or bigger than these sizes, please use our Generic Toe-Up Sock pattern to custom-fit the sock to your foot.
Once you choose your size, go through the pattern and circle the numbers that apply to your size.
For all sizes, using Judy's Magic Cast-On, CO 16 sts...
Repeat Rounds 1-2 until there are 14(16) sts on each needle [28(32) sts total].
For the Medium-Large size, you would circle the second number in each set of numbers (shown above in red).
Don't skip this step! It's important to have your pattern numbers clear before you begin.
