Basic Skills Necessary:

  • follow a written pattern
  • be familiar with sock knitting

Pattern Description:

The pattern was the second release for the 2011 edition of Super Sock Scarefest.

If you've ever watched The Bride of Frankenstein, you'll know that we have to wait a long time before she makes an appearance in the film. When we finally do see her, she's wrapped in gauze from head to foot. These pedicure socks are inspired by her 'look'. Eyelets create the look of moth-eaten bandages. These socks are great for keeping your feet warm while your polished toes dry. The pattern comes with two leg options, and uses an easy random lace technique. They're a no-brainer (lol).

You will need 2-3 50gm balls of Soxx Appeal, or 400-600 yds of fingering yarn containing at least 1% elastic. The ELASTIC IS CRITICAL to this pattern.

Gauge:

8 sts per inch in stockinette, in the round. Be sure to knit your swatch in the round as knitting flat changes your gauge slightly. Take time to check gauge carefully to ensure proper fit.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Woman's M/L 8"circumference: (can be easily adjusted for width and length to fit most feet).

Materials:

  • one set of 2.5mm double-pointed needles. OR two sets of 2.5mm circular needles; OR one 2.5m circular needle at least 24" long for magic loop (or what ever size is necessary to hit gauge).

You Will Also Need:

  • stitch markers
  • six 5/8" buttons
  • darning needle
  • optional: row counter, a pair of dice or a sudoku book

Suggested yarn:

500 yards of Fingering weight
