My dad’s feet get cold, and his circulation’s not so great, so I wanted to knit him some thick warm socks to wear around the house.

These are sumptuous, supremely cozy & gorgeous, especially when knit in a luxurious alpaca/merino tweedy blend.

Options abound: you can knit these in a single color or do a contrasting color for the heel flap & toe; you can knit the cabled heart heel flaps or plain heel flaps, either in a single or contrasting color.

Despite all the details – mirrored cables, honeycomb cables, ribbed gussets, patterned heel flap – these knit up amazingly fast.

Finished size: Men’s medium, to fit men’s size 9-10.  Make socks longer or shorter as needed.

Yarn:   Heavy worsted.

Needles: US size 5 (3.75 mm) or size needed to obtain gauge.

Gauge: 24 sts & 32 rnds = 4” in St st in the rnd.

    Notions:  stitch marker, tapestry needle, cable needle.

    Skills needed: knitting in the round, cabling, reading charts.
