Stumptown Socks

These socks are fun to make out of any speckled yarn that finds its way into your stash – they are mostly-stockinette, with a fun “v” pattern working their way up the foot and leg, it’s enough fancy footwork to keep you interested, but not so much that you miss what’s happening on Grimm…


  • Finished Measurements: Adult small (medium, large): 7½ (8, 8½)” foot circumference. 5″ leg length (measured from top of heel; customizable)
  • Yarn: approximately 330-400 yards fingering-weight yarn. I used Knitted Wit Victory Sock, colorway Rock Candy Teal.
  • Needles: US1/2.25mm needle for small circumference knitting, or size needed to get gauge.
  • Notions: stitch markers, tapestry needle.
  • Gauge: 35 sts & 50 rows = 4”/10 cm in stockinette stitch in the round, measured after blocking.
