I had a dream I was wearing these spiral socks, and that they were lovely to knit and even more wonderful to wear. (I’m not a crazy person, I don’t normally dream about socks.) Named after my friend Eunice, these socks are sunny, fun, and a little bit odd.
While I could have charted this pattern or written it out row by row, it’s much easier to knit this sock if you “read” your knitting rather than follow a chart. Directions are provided with pictures, but I promise you it’s easier than it looks. By providing instructions for reading your knitting, it’s much easier to customize your sock to your liking and to adjust sizes.
100 grams fingering weight wool/nylon blend.
Red sock – Araucania Ranco Solid (376 yards per 100 grams), 75% wool, 25% nylon.
Purple/blue/green sock – [discontinued] dkKnits technicolor dream toes (460 yards per 100 grams), 75% superwash extrafine merino, 25% nylon.
Note about Ranco Solid: This yarn is slightly heavier than most fingering weight yarns. Use the yarn and needle that best gets gauge when working this project.
Gauge and Needle
Use the needle, yarn, gauge, and stitch count that work best for you when knitting socks if in doubt.
