As we settle into the chilly weather this season, there is nothing cozier or more comforting than soft, hand knitted socks. Toasty knit socks are like a big hug for our feet and everyone needs at least one pair. With so many sock patterns available, it can be tricky to know which pattern will suit you best. Here are our favorite 7 comfy winter sock knitting projects.

Composition Socks

Our composition socks knitting kit is a great cuff down sock with an all-over lace pattern. The stitch pattern works well with tonal variegated yarns and the hybrid fleegle heel is integrated in the leg. The kit includes the pattern and (2) skeins of yarn. You will be so glad that you knitted up these delightful socks this winter.

If you love a bulky weight slipper sock to keep your toes toasty while you curl up with a book, you will love these knitted socks. These socks knit up quickly, as they use a bulky weight yarn. The free pattern includes instructions to knit the socks from the toe up using circular knitting needles.
