It has been snowing and blowing here on PEI and weather like this always makes me crave warm wooly things to snuggle up in. I figure that right now is the perfect time to share with you a really quick and sock pattern to keep your tootsies nice and toasty. This pattern is also perfect for showing off lovely handspun yarn!
Handspun Boot Socks are worked up in bulky weight yarn using the magic loop but can be easily adapted to double pointed needles. They are worked toe-up with a short row heel and reach to the knee, although the height of the sock is easily customized.
8” in foot circumference, 11” calf circumference but will stretch to fit a 15” calf very comfortably.
8 oz of your favorite combed top OR ~340 yards/310 m of your favorite bulky weight yarn
