ePattern: Toasty Toes Sock on 40 peg
Available as downloadable PDF.The popular toasty toes socks pattern by Joanna Brandt, originally done here on the 3/8" 36 peg Adult Small/Youth Glove and Sock Loom, is now done using the larger 3/8″ 40 peg Adult Sock, Small Gauge Loom. With this loom an extra inch is provided to finished circumference for a looser fit or larger feet. Finished size is 8" in circumference but stretches to fit up to 9" or more depending on yarn used. Length of sock can be made smaller or larger to adjust various shoe sizes by following notes in pattern.
Recommended yarn is cascade pacific which is a ww superwash wool/ acrylic blend and very soft! For a shoe size of women's size 9 or smaller 1 ball of the cascade pacific yarn is enough to make one pair of socks. Other yarns can be substituted as well but yarns which offer stretch and elasticity such as wool or wool blends or those with lycra, polyurethane or nylon work best.

Techniques used include uwrap knit, purl, and wrapping and turning pegs.
