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.

  • Knit in the round using the magic loop method with a circular needle.

Pattern, Knit in the Round, Magic Loop Method:

  • CO 12 STS, split 6 STS on each needle, PM, 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.
  • Insert the liner inside the knitted sock, fold the top over and then stitch around the top to attach.


  • 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.
