Be inspired with free sock patterns!
If you've visited our Yarnovision Sock Collection, you may have ended up with a one (or more) sock sets in your cart. (Don't know what Yarnovision is? Go check out the blog post that explains why I've made a collection based on the best song competition ever.) Great! But now, the question may be, how exactly do I go about knitting socks? If you are, like me, an infrequent sock knitter at best, then you may be a little lost as to what kinds of patterns will work best with these yarns.
Don't worry! I'm here to curate a list of free sock patterns that will work with most if not all of our Yarnovision sets. I've included links to the sets I think would work best, but they are just suggestions! The world of sock knitting is wide and varied, and we're just helping you to get your toes a little wet in the pool. Let's take a look at some patterns!
This is a pattern for the absolute beginner. Summer's pattern is a very thorough introduction to knitting socks and using Magic Loop for small-circumference knitting. The written instructions are detailed, and she includes videos to help demonstrate the different techniques.

Weekend Shorty Socks by Summer Lee (Ravelry)
These are shorty socks (ankle socks, as I usually call them). Which means that you could get 2 full pairs out of a regular sock set!
