Soft & Strong Socks

Soft & Strong Socks


The Soft & Strong Socks celebrate friendship among women - friendship that is both soft and strong, that grows beautiful flowers based on a firm foundation, that blossoms and blooms over time. When women work together, like in this collaboration, and subsequently become friends, we create a very special kind of magic that we hope you feel with every stitch of this pattern.

They’re knit toe-up with a gusset and heel flap and adjustable foot and leg length to make sure you can knit a pair of socks that really fits you.

The yarn used for this pattern is Oysters and Purls 100% Corriedale. It’s soft, yet strong - just like the design itself and the female friendship we want to highlight.

The sample is a size 2 with a foot length (including the gusset and heel turn) of 22 cm / 8.7” and a leg length of 9 cm / 3.5”.
