{FREE} Sock Knitting Pattern : Sweet Dreams


Free & easy sock knitting pattern on circular needles. I’m still afraid of knitting a traditional sock, so these chunky tube socks will have to do. Aren’t they so cute {and they’re super easy to knit}?! They’re lined with fleece to make them a little warmer and cozier.

Pattern, Knit in the Round, Magic Loop Method:

CO 12 STS, PM, split 6 STS on each needle, join in the round.


Round 1: *K*

Round 2: *K1, INC1, K4, INC1, K1* {increase 4 STS} 12+4=16

Round 3: *K1, INC1, K6, INC1, K1* {increase 4 STS} 16+4=20

Round 4: *K1, INC1, K8, INC1, K1* {increase 4 STS} 20+4=24


At this point you should have 12 STS on each needle.

If you want, flip it inside out and seam up the toe. It’s easier to do now, rather than wait until you’re finished.


Rounds 5+: Knit all stitches, until it measures 18″ {45cm} or desired length.


Weave in the ends.

Block, if desired.

Knit the second the same as the first.



Using the fabric of your choice, cut 2 pieces 11″ wide x 21″ long {28cm x 53cm}.

Fold in half, width-wise. Sew the long side and 1 short side of both pieces.

Insert the liner inside the knitted sock, fold the top over and then stitch around the top to attach.
