Here are some vegan socks that I made (and designed) using 2 skeins of Maizy sock yarn.  I used US size 2 bamboo needles (2.75mm).  Thanks for looking!  Pattern:

Lazy Maizy Socks

The Lazy Maizy Socks feature simple lace cuffs that are cute and easy to knit, perfect for lazy day knitting and wearing! 

   Yarn:  2 skeins of Crystal Palaces Maizy (82% corn fiber, 18% elastic nylon)

   Needles:  set of US size 2 (2.75mm) dpns, or size needed to obtain gauge.

   Gauge:  8 stitches/inch in stockinette in the round.

   Size:  Womens Large.  I made these to fit me (I wear a US size 10 shoe and have an 8 ankle) and to be slightly looser than regular socks.  As is, they are perfect for a lazy day at home but you could easily go down a needle size to make more snug socks.

Cuff and Leg

1.   Cast on 60 stitches.  Distribute stitches over the dpns and join for working in the round.
2.   Work 10 rounds of 2 X 1 rib.
3.   Knit 3 rounds.
4.   *YO, K2tog* repeat across round.
5.   Repeat steps three and four 7 more times or until the leg is desired length, ending with step 3.

Heel Flap

1.   Knit 30 stitches onto 1 needle.
2.   Purl these 30 stitches, ignoring the rest for now.
3.   *Slip 1, K* repeat across heel stitches.
4.   Slip 1, Purl across heel stitches.
5.   Repeat steps three and four 13 more times.

Turning the Heel and Picking up Stitches

1.   K 18, ssk, K1, turn.
2.   Slip 1, p7, p2tog, p1, turn.
3.   Slip 1, knit to 1 stitch before gap, ssk, K1, turn.
4.   Slip 1, purl to 1 stitch before gap, p2tog, p1, turn.
5.   Repeat steps three and four until all heel stitches have been worked.
6.   Knit across the heel stitches.
7.   With the same needle [Needle 1] pick up and knit 22 stitches along the edge of the heel flap.
8.   With another needle [Needle 2] knit across the held instep stitches (30 stitches).
9.   With another needle [Needle 3] pick up and knit 22 stitches along the other edge of the heel.
10.   Knit 9 stitches from Needle 1 onto Needle 3.


1.   Needle 1:  Knit to last three stitches, K2tog, Knit 1.
Needle 2:  Knit
Needle 3:  Knit 1, ssk, knit across rest of needle.
2.   Knit.
3.   Repeat steps one and two 15 more times.  You should then have 15 stitches on both Needles 1 and 3 and 30 on Needle 2.

1.   Knit even on all needles until the foot is about 1 less than desired total foot length.  For me, that was 51 rows of stockinette (yes, I counted!). 


1.   Needle 1:  Knit to last three stitches, K2tog, K1
Needle 2:  K1, ssk, knit to last 3 stitches on needle, K2tog, K!
Needle 3:  K1, ssk, knit to end of needle.
2.   Knit
3.   Repeat steps two and three 7 more times.  You should have 7 stitches on both Needles 1 and 3 and 14 stitches on Needle 2.
4.   Knit the stitches from Needle 1 onto Needle 3.
5.   Kitchner up the toe and youre done!

I really like these, and the colours are great!  Thanks for posting the pattern.

Gorgeous!! And thanks  Kiss for the pattern - I'm knitting socks in a self-striping yarn and didn't want to do all stockinette, but couldn't decide on a stitch pattern that was simple to do (this one is) looks good (this one does) and doesn't 'fight' with the self striping yarn (this one probably won't) - I think this is it!  Grin

Thanks, that's what I had in mind when I designed it, not something too difficult or fancy, but not just another plain stockinette sock.
