This is the second part of this week’s Yogini’s Knitting Corner. One of my favorite projects to make recently has been yoga socks, an idea suggested by Kimberly (who happens to be in the pink socks below). And I’ve been asked a few times now for the pattern that I’ve used, so I wanted to share it here. I found a pattern for Easy Peasy Yoga Pilates socks and made some modifications that have made them fit my feet and ankles a bit better. Here’s my final pattern:
US Size 5, 9″ circular needle
Classic Elite Yarns Cotton Bam Boo (knitting weight DK – so any sock, fingering, or DK weight should work)
This pattern can be used to make socks for regular and wide width feet. Numbers in parenthesis indicate the wide width modification.
CO 42 (48)
Round 1: knit all stitches
Round 2: purl all stitches
Round 3: knit all stitches
Rounds 4-31: *k2p1, repeat from *
Round 32: 21 (24) k2p1, bind off 21 (24) loosely in k2p1 rib
Round 33: *k2p1, repeat from *, turn work
Round 34: *p2k1, repeat from *, turn work
Round 35: *k2p1, repeat from *, CO 21 (24) and rejoin work
Rounds 36-78: *k2p1, repeat from *
Round 79: knit all stitches
Round 80: purl all stitches
Round 81 knit all stitches
Round 82: purl all stitches
Round 83: bind off loosely in knit
Make your second sock and you are ready to wear these on and off the mat. Increase or decrease the amount of rounds between 36 and 78 based on how high you would like the sock to come up onto the calf.
If you have any questions about the pattern, feel free to comment. I’m a novice pattern writer and I’ve been doing my best as I write patterns to have them make sense.
I hope you enjoy making these as much as I do. Happy Knitting!
