Sock pattern for size 13 shoe? (Men's)
 
Hey guys...We here in South Texas don't gte much of a winter, but when that little time comes, it's a shocker. I want to make my honey some socks for the winter... but i dont know of a pattern. I want it simple too...I havent ever knit socks before.

Any heads up? :thinking:

I'm a little confused... That sock conversion looked like it tells how many inches and whatnot are for a woman or a man depending on their shoe size? This is good information, but the problem right now is that I dont have a pattern big enough for my boyfriend's feet :( :?? That or I need someone to guide me on how to caculate my own sock pattern...

I really do thank you for those links though :happydance:

Actually by doing a little research I found this pattern,but before I start...do you think it's worth it? I've never done socks and want to make sure it's an easy one to do... :oops:

Or perhaps this ones better?

I was actually looking for a sock pattern similar to your situation - my boyfriend wears a size 12 shoe. I'm currently working on a pattern from a book called Sensational Knitted Socks by Charlene Schurch. It's one of the best books in my collection. She gives very specific instruction for 4 or 5 needles, as well as 2 circulars, most size socks plus tons of patterns. I truly recommend this book!

I'll have to look out for that one :) thanks. I decided to start the wiseneedle pattern and had to restart about 4 or 5 times ... Its not that its hard- its just different and I'm making little mistake.

LOL, I don't think I will ever be able to knit socks for Mike. He's a size 15, extra wide. I have enough trouble buying him socks, let alone ever finding a pattern to knit him socks :rofling:

CRIKEY!! Is that Mike JORDAN you are talking about???

humblestumble 10-11-2005 07:03 PM

haha, right? wow. That's really big feet there! I dont think it'd be too hard to alter a pattern for him. It seems this sock I'm knitting may fit my darlin afterall. And it says for 13+ She even has a "Sasquatch" pattern...
