Try Again Socks

These try-tastic man-sized socks have been designed and donated to p/hop by our talented supporter Sadie Slater aka Whitehart.

These men’s socks, with a pattern of rugby goalposts, have a good stretch and will look great knitted in your team colours, or in browns and greens to look like a rugby pitch using your scrummiest yarn!

Knitting from stash?

1 x 100g skein or 2 x 50g skeins of 4-ply/fingering weight yarn. (Be aware that if your yarn is less than 400m to 100g/200m to 50g you may need an extra skein – I used 390m for my sample pair.)

2.5mm needles for working in the round (the pattern is written for Magic Loop but could easily be
adapted for two circulars or dpns if you prefer)

Darning needle for sewing in ends
