It's June, and it's (finally) warm enough for shorts, skirts, and the chance to show off all the fun knit socks! And in perfect timing (or just my happy scheduling), the newly released BrickWorks Socks are the featured Pattern for the June Knit-Along!

These socks started after getting the idea to model a stitch pattern after some old brickwork on a converted factory building! After playing about, I got a simple knit and purl pattern that really resembled bricks!

With a simple stitch pattern that only uses knits and purls, this is a perfect sock for a beginner knitter who's just getting into the wonderful world of hand-knit socks.

 They're knit from the cuff down; using a heel-flap and gusset, so you do have to pick up and knit, but there are tutorial links right in the pattern to help you through it! The toe is sewn up with grafting (also known as Kitchener stitch), and again, if you're not sure, don't worry, there are tutorial links right in the pattern, as well!)

This pattern has written instructions only. This pattern also has an accessible large print option that is compatible with screen-reading software.
Sample was worked in sample was knit in *Knit Picks Stroll Tweed in "Firecracker Heather" and shown in size S.   If you're substituting yarn, look for a wool/nylon blend made for knitting socks, or, if you want to avoid wool, look for a yarn with some elastic in the mix, like a cotton/elastic blend.

You can buy the pattern through Etsy, or in my Web Shop, the discount is available on both platforms.

Now, onto the Knit-Along!
