How to Knit a Pair of Shortie Socks in 10 days (or less)

I don’t know about you, but I love to knit socks. Especially, shortie socks. What are shortie socks, you ask? Let me explain…

Shortie socks are basically ankle length socks. Socks that peek over the top of your shoe. A sock that’s perfect for booties (short boots). I have a formula for getting the entire pair, both socks, complete in 10 days (or less).

This formula is for Cuff Down socks:

Day one: Cast on and finish the cuff. If you have a few rows before the heel, do that too.

Day two: Heel flap and heel turn

Day three: Pick up your stitches from heel flap, begin and finish your gusset decrease.

Day four: Complete foot (This may take an extra day, if life throws you a curveball.)

Day five: Toe & Kitchener the end of the toe closed

Five days is all it takes to finish the first sock. Of course, like anything, life can get in the way causing it to go an extra day or two. But generally, this formula can keep you on track.

Now, repeat for the second sock. Sometimes it takes someone (like me) 🙂 to lay out a schedule.

Both of these Shortie Sock Knitting Patterns below can be found on Etsy or Ravelry.

Happy (SOCK) Knitting!
