Rococo Socks
shown here in j. knits Superwash Me merino sock yarn, color new jersey (what else?)

  • pattern price: $5.00 US (ohio residents, please add $.30 sales tax)
  • payment method: paypal to: patternsATknitspotDOTcom (remove AT and DOT;
    replace with symbols).
  • Suggested Yarns: j. knits Superwash Me Sock, Fearless Fibers merino sock, Lisa Souza Sock merino, Schaefer Anne, or any soft, fine, sock yarn which has 500 or more yards per 4 ounces (heavier yarns will produce a larger sick width)
  • Notes: Socks are knit toe-up with a short-row toe and heel. Instructions are written for knitting with DPNs, but are adaptable for using with circular needles.
    Knit at the stated gauge, this pattern produces a sock which measures approximately 7.5 to 8�? around and fits foot sizes up to 9�?. A wider sock may be obtained by using slightly heavier yarn and larger needles to obtain a stitch gauge which has less stitches per inch.
  • Finished Size: Finished width of sock: 8�?; cuff length from top of heel is 9�?
  • Yarn requirements: Approximately 350 yards of fine, sock-weight yarn (actual yardage will depend on sock length desired)
  • Gauge: 32 stitches and 44 rows = 4 inches in stockinette st on size 1(2.25mm) DPNs
  • Needles: DPNs size 1 (2.25 mm) or size to obtain correct gauge

patterns will be emailed in PDF format once payment is confirmed or eCheck has cleared; please contact us for information about wholesale orders

  1. LOVE them! And there’s no reason why one couldn’t knit them top-down instead, is there? The “cable” looks like it would look just fine running in the reverse direction…

  2. I love them! I have a quick question. I’ve looked and everywhere I do it says that the J. Knits is 420 yards to 4 ounces. The other yarns you have listed are more than 500, but not the J. Knits. I have some Cherry Tree Hill that is 420 and would love to use it, but I have been fooled by sock yarns before.

    A yarn store opened locally and I was shopping for a specific weight sock yarn (very thin) and the owner was showing me other sock yarns. I kept telling her that I needed a thinner one and she said something to the effect that they are all sock yarns, as if they could be interchangeable. I hope the shop makes it. I hope they have more knowledgeable staff….

  3. Oh, these socks are gorgeous!!! When I make my way back to sock knitting, I’ll definitely be stopping by for this pattern.

    And I totally am with you–Spumoni–perfect for the socks in the next post!
