Needles: Set of size US 9 (5.5mm) double-pointed needles
Yarn: Two 100 gram hanks of bulky weight wool yarn (more precisely, the women’s size takes about 110 grams, the men’s size takes about 130 grams)
Additional Materials: Size G or H crochet hook, a few feet of worsted-weight scrap yarn in a contrasting color, tapestry needle for weaving ends

  1. Thanks for the great tutorial and how to do the hygge booties… I love the way it turned out and I will be knitting that as soon as I am done with my project. I am wondering if the soles would wear out if you walk on it very often.

    By the way, I learned to knit my first sock by watching your top down sock knitting tutorial and I know I can do it this time! Thanks so much!

  2. I forgot to add this to my comment above…

    I see you used Knit Picks for this project. Since I am trying to cut down my yarn stash, is it ok to use the worsted weight yarn I have or double it? What else would you recommend?

  3. Hi Debbie – to answer your first question, this bulky yarn is thick enough so that the booties won’t wear out quickly, but they will eventually wear out like any other socks.

    Regarding the yarn – you should be able to get the correct gauge if you hold worsted yarn double-stranded.
