Yoga Socks with Worsted Weight Yarn?

Have You Seen These Yoga Sock Patterns?

Short Yoga Anklets |

This came up in conversation because someone had visited the blog with a just that question – “how would I knit Yoga socks with worsted weight fabric?” Seeing as how I am NOT an expert and Ally has not knit any socks I started doing some looking.
Wouldn’t you know it, there are patterns on Ravelry…..you HAVE to love that site.
The Worsted Weight Yoga Sock pattern I liked the most out of the ones I found is located here: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/namaste-socks


She uses [US] size 4 double point needles, about 150 yards worsted weight yarn and casts on 44 stitches.
I love it—-off to make some of those!!! :)

 Yoga Footies Knitting Pattern

These are sooooo easy to make.  If you have never knit socks or used tiny needles this could be a good intro for you.  Since there is no heel, no stitches to pick up and there is no toe area to graft these are a quick knitting project.

NOTE:  She is wearing these to school today with flip flops….now why hadn’t I thought of that? LOL

My teen and preteen daughter take Yoga classes and wanted socks without toes and heels so they could get better traction on their mats.

I made the first sock following a pattern that I picked up in the store but the girls were quick to point out that they don’t wear bobbie sock length socks, they like footies so I played around with patterns and developed these.
The pattern used was inspired by Patons Kroy Socks Yoga Socks.

Size 2 dpn’s

100 yards Sock yarn ( I used Premier Yarns, Serenity Sock Weight in Amethyst)

18 stitches x14 rows= 2”

Cable cast on 64 stitches and knit 1×1 rib for 1 ½”

Next round evenly increase by 6 stitches (72 stitches)
Next round – bind off loosely the first 36 stitches and finish round in 1×1 ribbing.

Cable cast on 36 stitches and rejoin in round.
Continue 1×1 ribbing for 5 more rows.

On this next round decrease 6 stitches evenly around. This is the only time you will do this in this row of the pattern.

Continue with pattern below.
Round 1 – Knit all
Round 2- K1, P3. Repeat around
Round 3- Knit all
Round 4- K1, P3. Repeat around
Round 5- Knit all
Round 6 – P2, K1, P1. Repeat around
Round 7 – Knit all
Round 8 – P2, K1, P1. Repeat around

Continue until work measures 2 ½” . Make sure to end by completing a knit all round (one of the odd # rows)

1×1 ribbing for 5 more rows.
Bind off and weave in ends.

Yoga Socks Knitted in Worsted Weight

Ally’s Stretch Yoga Socks Pattern

Patton’s Stretch Yarn Yoga Socks ~ Free Knitting Pattern

This was the first ‘sock type’ thing I ever knit and more importantly the first pattern I ever attempted to type up and make available.  If you find something that isn’t quite right or does not make sense please let me know as it is very likely you are a more experienced knitter than I.

If you are a complete beginner but think you might want to knit socks someday this could be a great intro to tiny needles and stretch yarn.

So here is my go at the pattern:

Approx 1/2 skein Pattons Stretch Sock for the pair
Us size 3 DPN’s (if you prefer using two circulars or magic loop that method should work fine)

My gauge is 14 stitches, 18 rows= 2″

  • Pattern
    Cast on 52 ( I used a cabled cast)
  • P1, K1 ribbing in the round for 2″ (approx 16 rows)
  • Knit 1″ (approx 11 rows) ( I used stockingnet stitch but you could do any pattern you prefer for this area)
  • 5 rows 1×1 rib
  • Cable bind off the first 26 stitches, continue ribbing across remaining (26)stitches  Here is a video I found that demonstrates the cable bind off.  You could also do a k1, p1 bind off.
  • Cable cast on another 26 stitches and proceed with 1×1 rib for 5 more rows
  • Decrease 6 stitches evenly around (46 stitches)
  • Knit for 3″ ( I used stockingnette stitch but you could do any pattern you prefer for this area)
  • Change to 1×1 ribbing for 5 rows
  • Cable cast off (or k1, p1 bind off) and weave in any ends
  • Repeat for second sock.
