Five great sock patterns for men
If you took a peek in my sock drawer you might be amazed at how many pairs I have… I love socks. I have every color and pattern imaginable, but I’m really lacking in the hand-knit area. If I could have any knit socks from our wonderful community, these five would be at the top of my list:
These warm and stretchy socks from Wyndlestraw Designs have a simple wide rib pattern that provides some cushion, texture, and shape. You can knit these up in a plain color or use some variegated yarn to spice them up a bit.
Kelly Patia made this diamond cable sock pattern in worsted weight for her brother, and gasped when he put them on, thinking “They’re really handsome,” hence the name. Finally a slipper sock that I can wear around the house without having to cover them up!
Though these Louise Tilbrook hoar frost socks aren’t necessarily designed for men, the pattern download includes a less lacy version for a more masculine sock. Either way, I think the pattern is great, and they look incredibly comfy!
Of course we at LoveKnitting would be delighted to see any sock patterns you might have, so upload them to your profile to share with the community, or find some inspiration from others by clicking below!
