I love Wolverine from X-Men and designed these socks for the opening of the latest movie. The mock ribbing mimics his claw slash marks.
These socks are very simple for beginner sock knitters and mindless sock knitting that is a step away from stockinette. The pattern uses a toe up construction, afterthought heel, and mock seed stitch ribbing for wolverine's claw marks.
The pattern is written as well as charted. Use the chart as a visual guide if desired. The pattern is so simple and fun you will have it memorized in no time at all.
The pattern is written for using two circulars or magic loop. To use DPN simply divide the front and back stitches onto 4 needles and follow the pattern.
XS - 8" foot
S - 8.5" foot
M - 9.5" foot
L - 10.5" foot
Make the socks as long or short as you like. You will use between 350-400 yards for a standard length sock so adjust your yardage needs based on your desired length and foot size ;)
8 stitches per inch
400 yards of Fingering weight
I've been obsessed with crafting and baking since I was four years old. Whenever I visited my grandmother we baked and did needle arts all day and night. Now I'm still doing the same :)
