I love nearly everything tincanknits produces. Their patterns are fabulous, their photos are gorgeous, and their tutorials are so helpful and well written.

So I was happy to see that they’ve adapted one of their most popular worsted weight sock patterns, Rye, into Rye Light! Rye Light uses fingering weight yarn, is sized for the whole family and would look great in any color of Ewe Ewe Fluffy Fingering merino yarn. Win!

The Rye Light socks are perfect for a beginning knitter wanting to dabble in sock knitting. They are knit from the top down and have a simple garter stitch panel that is worked over the ankle and top of the foot.

Plus, there is an entire tutorial on their website about how to work each part of these socks! Check it out.
