For most knitters, a sock project is simply part of their life. Socks just always go and are especially practical for on the go or in between. Whether heavy or thin, patterned or plain - warm feet never hurt!

Of course, you'll find everything you need for knitting socks at Maschenfein, too. We provide you with beautiful pattern, carefully selected knitting kits and the necessary accessories.

Find the right guide

Knitting has long ceased to be a stale hobby. On the contrary! It meets the spirit of the times, decelerates and simply does you good. How practical, then, if you always have a small project with you. And socks are simply ideal.

There are many different techniques for knitting socks. You can start at the bun or at the toe, knit the heel directly or add it later ... That doesn't make the choice of pattern any easier. For sock beginners we recommend the Basic Socks by Paula_m. They are simply knitted "from the top", i.e. from the cuff to the toe. Advanced sock lovers will certainly enjoy the wonderful Laine book "52 Weeks of Knitting". 46 designers have contributed designs to this collection. And honestly: One model is more beautiful than the other. You can also find the second volume in our store.

The right yarn

Whoever "can" sock yarn for sure is Regia/Schachenmayr. Regia developed the first sock yarns some 70 years ago, and later added the wonderful premium yarns to their range, which we carry in their entirety here at Maschenfein. In fact, we are so enthusiastic about the "Krönchen" yarns that we recorded our own podcast episode about them with Schachmayr. But other manufacturers also carry beautiful sock yarns. For example, we love Merida from LAMANA or Pinta from Pascuali.

The right needles

Whether it's double pointed needles, crasy trios or sock wonders, you're sure to find the right needles for you here. Whether you prefer to make the small rounds on the double pointed needles or on the short circular needles, you just have to try it out.

The birch wood double pointed needles of the brand Lykke with the central metal piece on which the size is located, is great in the hand and is also very pretty.

The CraSy Trio are a new type of circular knitting needle from Addi and now also available in the bamboo version. Your sock lies on two needles and with the third you knit off.

The Sock Wonder from Addi is a super short circular needle with which you can knit socks and also gloves quite comfortably in rounds.

You want it really warm and cozy? Then these felt slippers are something for you: The Sandnesdesign is knitted quickly and also scores with an interesting construction. The Doble Tøfler are worked on 5.5 mm needles from 100% virgin wool and then felted in the washing machine. And the best thing is: from children's to men's size is everything.

More useful accessories

As is often the case with knitting, needles and yarn are not enough. With the help of tensioners in the right size, you can easily shape your finished socks after washing. Patterns in particular will then really come into their own. Wool detergent also ensures that you can enjoy your knitted socks for a long time.

And what would your project be without a nice little bag to store your yarn and needles in? Exactly. And best of all, you can decorate the bag with a matching pin. This makes the most beautiful hobby in the world even more beautiful!
