In socks production, enterprises always confuse how to estimate the quantity of the yarns rapidly and correctly for different kinds of socks. It results in the socks’ costs cannot be calculated in time. This paper aims at the calculation method of yarn used in the socks based on their pattern files and development of the corresponding software so that the quantity of yarns consumption can be calculated timely before the sock production. The composition of sock was introduced and the pattern file for sock production was analysed firstly. Then a concept of Thousand Stitches Weight(TSW) was proposed and the TSWs were determined for some yarns with different knitting structures. On this basis, a process was proposed for the calculation of yarn expending in a sock with different knitting structures before production. Finally, a software was developed to get the results fast and easily. The example shows that the calculation method proposed in this paper is reliable and valuable for hosiery enterprises.
