the dude abides

Inspired by the classic Cowichan-style sweater worn by Jeff Lebowski (aka "The Dude") in one of my favorite movies, "The Big Lebowski", these fun colorwork socks could easily be worked in worsted-weight yarn on slightly bigger needles for your own dude.


Approximately 250 yards sport-weight yarn in MC and 200 yards in CC

Sample uses Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sport (100% superwash wool) in Chocolate for MC and Mountain Colors Bearfoot (60% superwash wool, 25% mohair, 15% nylon) in Copper for CC.

US2 (2.75mm) needles or size needed to obtain gauge


8 stitches/11 rounds per inch in colorwork pattern


Foot circumference = approximately 8"
