Zig Zag Socks

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knitting in the round

Pattern Description:

These socks, with their optional double-knit soles, will be a delight to wear as regular socks or slippers. Begun with a provisional cast-on, the sock can later be extended upwards (if your yarn supply permits) or finished from the cast on edge with bells and fringe, for a frivolous flourish.

This project is also available as a kit featuring my Celestial Merino Mottled Solids Yarns from my website.
