My perfect double stranded socks are the perfect sock pattern to knit up during these colder months. They use fingering weight held double to create an incredible fabric. I've been obsessed knitting these socks and have made multiple versions and can't stop!

I've designed this pattern to use up those beautiful fingering weight skeins of yarn. This is a perfect pattern to try out knitting socks for the first time as well. I've designed the pattern to come in 6 different sizes from Toddler to Adult XL. You will have the perfect sock pattern for the whole family.
What is double stranded?
This is where you hold the yarn double while knitting, rather than using only one strand of yarn you'll be using two strands.
How do I divide my yarn?
First you will weight out your yarn on a scale and divide that number in half. For example if you have a skein of yarn that weights 100 grams, you will be dividing it into two 50 grams.
Wind your full yarn on a swift and ball winder (here is mine from Knit Picks incase you'd love to grab yourself one). Then once you've fully wound your yarn into 1 cake, and divide the 1 cake into two 50 grams.
What's included in the pattern?
In the pattern you will have the full instructions on how to knit the socks cuff down, you'll get 3 different heel types (Heel flap and gusset, afterthought heel and German short row heel). You'll also get instructions on how to add a pop of color at the top of your cuff.

If two samples weren't enough I decided to cast on a third pair for myself. I received this beautiful skein of A Homespun House from my friend Kay. We decided to cast them on to have a pair of holiday socks to wear on Christmas Eve/Day.
