Foote Brook

foote brook main

Foote Brook is a pattern for a toasty warm pair of boot socks knit out of sport weight yarn. These socks are a little stripy and have a touch of faux cables to add some tapering at the ankles. But they’re still plain enough for a man, and simple enough to stuff inside a pair of boots.


Worked in sport weight yarn these socks knit up very quickly. The stripes, heel, and toe are worked in a contrasting color. Even the largest size can be make with just two skeins of Knit Picks Stroll Sport. I can’t say enough about this yarn, it’s held up better than any other yarn to the wear and tear of Neil’s feet. Here are the socks after two years of regular wear:
