Warm Feet for Woodlarkers

Updated: Sep 6, 2023

Every woodlarker needs good hiking socks!

If there's one thing a woodlarker needs to keep them happy, it's warm socks and comfy feet in the colder months. If you've ever worn handknitted socks, you'll know that you just can't beat them for comfort, warmth and for being so hardwearing.

Please note: This is for a PDF knitting pattern for hiking socks, not for a finished pair of socks :-) You will receive a PDF copy of the pattern emailed to the email address you provide to Ravelry.

The socks featured in this post are from a knitting pattern for hiking socks called Crow Path by Hedgewoven Designs. The socks knit up quickly and the pattern is easier than you'd think.

The pattern gives a long-lasting pair of good hiking socks and the thicker yarn also makes them speedy to knit – perfect for a last-minute gift for the wayfarer in your life, and they also make rather fabulous indoor socks for lounging around on rainy days ❤

They’ll keep toes warm on the trails and the hardwearing heel not only looks good, but is also squishy and soft to help keep feet comfortable. The pattern is ribbed throughout so the socks will be stretchy and forgiving for different foot shapes, and you can easily adjust the height of the leg and the length of the foot as you go along.

- If you're already a sock knitter, you'll enjoy how quickly these knit up (fabulous for Yule gifts or stocking fillers!)

- If you're a knitter who hasn't tried making socks yet, this pattern is simple enough for it to be your first try. Don't be put off by the thought that socks are difficult, or by terms you don't understand yet. If you have a little experience of knitting in the round (even making a simple tube as a practice) then you're able to give this go. The pattern is written with beginners in mind and contains extra guidance notes to help you through, and the socks knit up quickly due to the thicker yarn.

- If you're not a knitter, befriend one and gift them this pattern and some aran-weight sock yarn ... your feet will thank you for it! ^_^

I bought this pattern looking forward to knitting these soon. I normally use 4 ply sock wool so these will knit up quicker

Love these socks - the pattern, for sure... and that color! I have a few sock patterns on the docket for the winter months... but I may have to bookmark this to purchase in the future.
