Wanderly Socks PDF Pattern


Some people travel with a destination in mind, and others like to get outdoors and follow where the path leads. These sport-weight, unisex hiking socks are inspired by the wandering type of adventure ‚œ the kind that surprises and delights, even if you don’t always know what’s around the next bend.

Size:  Adult S, M, L, XL

Because the cable pattern on these socks pulls in when relaxed and stretches when worn, choose your size based on the suggested foot circumference rather than the sock circumference. 

S: 6″ finished sock circumference to fit 7-7 ¾” foot circumference; 9″ length; 9″ height

M: 7″ finished sock circumference to fit 8-8¾” foot circumference; 9 ¾” length; 9 ¾” height

L: 8″ finished sock circumference to fit 9-9 ¾” foot circumference; 10 ¼“ length; 10 ¼” height

XL: 9″ finished sock circumference to fit 10-11″ foot circumference; 10 ½” length; 10 ½” height

Yarn: Morehouse Farm Gator sport weight 100% merino yarn.  You’ll need 2 skeins of the main color (which is enough to do a single-color pair of socks) and 1 skein of the contrast color for heels and toes.

Needles: Two US #3 US (3.25 mm) circular needles 16″ to 24″ in length, or size to obtain gauge. Can also be knit on double pointed needles or one long circular needle using magic loop method.
