Quick and Chunky Socks

I've just written up my quickest, chunkiest, easiest sock pattern into a photo-illustrated article on the ever excellent Downsizer site.

A doddle to make on 5mm needles using aran or chunky yarn, these are great quick knits for beginners.

Have a go yourself, the article is here.

I've never thought of trying chunky socks. Thanks for the pattern. Will definitely be given this a go.

Thank you so much for this pattern and the clear pictures. With these I finally feel confidant enough to try socks. I've taught myself to knit over the past few months, and have made scarves, hats, etc, but was always a little afraid to try socks...but not any longer! So thank you again! Faded Lily

I'm STUCK and I found that you had posted the same pattern I'm using.

I would LOVE some help. I have finished the 20 rows that make the heel, and it then says to do the following, however the first row only gives 15 stitch instructions and I have 20 sts still? Help!

1st row: purl 13, p 2 tog, p1; TURN;
2nd row: slip 1, k7, slip 1, k1, psso (pass the slipped stitch over the knit stitch), k1; TURN;
3rd row: slip 1, p8, p2tog; p1; TURN;
4th row: slip 1, k9, slip 1, k1, psso, k1; TURN;
5th row: slip 1, p10, p2tog; p1; TURN;
6th row: slip 1, k11, slip 1, k1, psso, k1;
