Socks

p/hop for your feet! Download a sock pattern

p/hop is an official knitting fundraiser for Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF)/ Doctors Without Borders.

Generous designers have been donating patterns to p/hop since November 2008, and are available for your knitting pleasure. In return we ask that you make a donation to p/hop when you download your pattern (you can do it here in pounds or here in dollars). p/hop is based on an honesty box system and the amount you donate is completely up to you! A tremendous amount has already been raised in support of MSF’s life-saving work.

We now have eighteen fabulous p/hop sock patterns available for you to download. Please click on the pattern picture for more details and the pattern pdf link.

New to sock knitting or want to knit a quick pair of socks? Our Quick and Easy DK Socks by Erssie Major are just the thing. As well as the pattern you can download our guide to sock construction. Click here to read more.
