DIY Kit - My First Socks
These socks are worked in the round from the cuff to the toe. The instructions are written for working with circular needles and the Magic Loop method; use double-pointed needles if you prefer to not work with the Magic Loop method.
As written, there are two colorwork options for this sock:
Version 1 has the Cuff and Toe in Color 1 and the Heel Flap, Turn Heel, Gusset, and Foot in Color 2.;
Version 2 has the Cuff, Heel Flap, Turn Heel, and Toe in Color 1 and the Gusset and Foot in Color 2.
There are also two versions of the Cuff: stockinette version and rib version. Instructions for both versions are included in the Cuff section.
If you want to add length to the foot, work additional rounds in Color 1 before working Round 1 of the Toe. (You may need more yarn.)
Dream is our new name for Merino Worsted yarn. Though the name is different and we have a new palette of color offerings, nothing else about Dream has changed: it is the same yarn you know and love!
