All the Math

I am pleased to feature a new, FREE pattern written by Helena. This generic pattern for magic-loop, toe-up socks with a slip stitch heel is named because I have done all the math for you.

The pattern includes instructions for 5 different sock sizes on 3 different needle sizes. Pictured sock is Trekking XXL, color 135 in size Women’s M on 2.5mm needles (Addi turbo US size 1).

Note that millimeter measurements can correspond to different US sizes, so it is important to make sure your needles match the millimeter measurement.


  • 100g sock-weight yarn
  • 1 circular needle, 32” or longer (40” is best), size 2mm, 2.5mm, or 3mm


  • 2mm needles: Sizes XS (S, M); Circumference 6.25 (7.25, 8.25); 8 sts per inch
  • 2.5mm needles: Sizes S (M, L); Circumference 7.25 (8.25, 9.25); 7.25 sts per inch
  • 3mm needles: Sizes M (L, XL); Circumference 8.25 (9.25, 10.25); 6.5 sts per inch
Note: for men’s socks, I recommend working size L (men’s M) or XL (men’s L).
