Namaste Socks

The perfect yoga sock! It took me a bit longer than I thought to get this pattern posted, but here it is! If you have any questions, please feel free to post them on here and I will answer them for you. I hope you enjoy them! Also available on Ravelry.

Namaste Socks

Yarn: ~150 yards Aran/Worsted Weight (I used Jo Sharp Aran Weight)

Needles: Four size US4 DPNs, Cable Needle (cn) or extra DPN


Round A (Normal Row)

Needle #1: Knit all sts

Needle #2: P3, K3, P2, K6, P2, K3, P3

Needle #3: Knit all sts

Needle #1: Knit all Sts

Needle #2: P3, K3, P2, slip 3 Sts to cn, hold in front, K3, K3 from cn, P2, K3, P3

Needle #3: Knit all sts



Cast on 44 sts loosely (I used cable cast on, but feel free to use what you like)

Divide sts onto 3 needles as follows: slip 11 sts to needle #1, slip 22 sts to needle #2 (this is the top of the sock), 11 sts will remain on what is now needle #3

Join round being careful not to twist sts

Rows 1-5: [K1, P1]* repeat * to end

Rows 6-11: Round A

Row 12: Round B

Rows 13-18: Round A

Row 19: Round B

Row 20-25: Round A

Row 26:

Needle #1: Knit all sts

Needle #2: P3, K3, P2, 3/3 cable (hold in front), P2, K3, P3

Needle #3: Bind off all sts loosely (you can add a few extra sts in the heel then bind off if you need more room)

Row 27:

Needle #1: Bind off all sts loosely (same as above, add sts if more room is needed)

Needle #2: P3, K3, P2, K6, P2, K3, P3

*You will now only have sts on Needle #2 – turn work (ws)

Row 31: (RS) Sl1, P2, K3, P2, K6, P2, K3, P3

With WS facing you, cast on 22 sts, (I used cable cast on here for a more finished look), divide sts evenly onto Needle #3 and Needle #1 (11 sts on each needle). Join Needle #1 and #2 in the round again being careful not to twist sts.

    I love the look and the worsted weight. What is the gauge for this pattern?

  9. August 13, 2011 at 10:39 pm

    Thanks Jodie- I am not 100% on the gauge, but I think it’s about 18 sts for 4 inches. That is for a size 6 foot. I hope you enjoy the pattern- there are lots of projects on Ravelry now, and many people made some great recommendations.

    Hello there!! I’m fairly new to knitting and I was wondering, if I wanted to make these for a size 9 foot, should I use larger needles? Thank you for sharing this wonderful pattern!! =)

  11. August 23, 2013 at 3:41 pm

    Hello Claire! Do you know if your gauge is loose or tight? If it is loose, you should have no problem. These socks can be knit longer to fit your foot. If you start the rounds, you will be able to put it on and figure out pretty quickly if you need to add a few more sts for more width, or go up a needle or two. Keep me posted! Thanks for trying my pattern!
