The Rye Socks from Tin Can Knits are super simple, quick knit socks in worsted weight yarn. Kits available in Children's and Adult sizes with 1-2 skeins of Urth Yarns Harvest or Monokrom Worsted Yarn. This hand-dyed, machine-washable, extrafine merino yarn will feel comfy and cozy while keeping your toes warm. These are the perfect socks for lounging around the house with a steaming cup of tea.
If you are making an Adult S, there is enough yarn to make the Adult size in addition to a pair of Baby, Toddler, or Child's size socks. If you are making the Adult M, a Baby pair can be made in addition to the adult size.
Note: Be sure to check your gauge. You may need to go up a needle size or two. Although Tin Can Knits recommends a Worsted/Aran weight, the yarn they chose happens to knit up as a DK, leading to the recommended needle size of US 3 & US 5.
