Tag Archives: Basic socks knit with Paton’s Kroy sock yarn

More Socks.

Finished my second pair of socks this morning and they fit much better than the first pair although they are still a loose fit compared to store bought.

The yarn used was Paton’s Kroy Socks Stripes in the colourway Kool. The pattern was from the book “Getting Started – Knitting Socks” by Ann Budd. It’s just a basic sock with K2P2 ribbing.

Basic socks knit with Paton’s Kroy Sock yarn.

This yarn knit up much better than the last yarn I used – no overtwisting and it was slightly larger so I went up a couple of needle sizes and it makes a difference in the amount of time spent knitting the socks. All in all well pleased with the project.
