These toe-up stranded colourwork socks feature an integrated colourwork fleegle heel and easy-to-memorise colourwork chart. Created in 4 different widths to accommodate any foot, and easy to modify up or down for bigger or smaller tootsies.



This pattern requires fingering weight yarn (400m per 100g) but how much really depends on how long you’d like to make the leg, and the width / length of your desired sock.
The sample pictured throughout was knit in the A width and used the following yarns:

Tiny Teal Handcrafted 100% Blue Faced Leicester (BFL) fingering weight yarn in undyed and rolling thunder for the main sock - approx 56g of each

Nervus Fibre 100% Corriedale Sock in buttered held with a pale yellow mohair for the toes and cuffs, approx 9g total.

You definitely won’t need more than 100g of each of your two colours even if making a more ‘standard’ leg length, and I recommend experimenting with odds and ends for your toes and cuffs if you’d like!


To complete these socks you’ll need your preferred needles, yarn snips or scissors, a tapestry needle, and a few stitch markers depending on your chosen needle setup.


I used size 2.25mm / US 1 needles for the toes and cuffs and knit at a gauge of 8 stitches and 10 rounds per 2.5cm / 1in, in stockinette stitch in the round. 

I then switched to size 3mm / US 2.5 needles for the colourwork to help keep gauge consistent.
