GreenEyedSusan, aka long term p/hop supporter Susan Bromiley, has donated this great men’s sock pattern to p/hop in memory of her Grandfather, Lyle.
Lyle socks are simple, versitile man socks knitted in a classic rib pattern to make a stretchy sock with a good fit. The pattern includes foot lengths for UK sizes 8-12 (Eur 42-47, US 9-13) so you can knit socks for all the men in your life.
All patterns have been generously donated to the project by designers to raise funds for MSF and are available for your knitting and crocheting pleasure. In return, we ask that you make a donation to p/hop based on the hours of enjoyment you will get from these patterns. p/hop is based on an honesty box system and the amount you donate is completely up to you! Making your donation is easy.

Knitting from stash?
Yarn: 100g (3.6oz) fingering-weight sock yarn, approx 400m / 440yd
Blue sample (UK 9, short cuff) used approx 85g.
Grey sample (UK 10, longer cuff) used 96g.
A long- cuffed sock in the larger sizes (UK 11 & 12) will require more than one 100g skein. To make a single skein suffice, either knit the short cuff or use a contrast colour for the toe & rib.
