Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit and purl

Pattern Description:

This is Lefty - the 4-ply sock yarn leftover carpet.
Lefty is easy to knit and a real stashbuster project.
You can either use up all your 4-ply sock yarn leftovers but also use complete new sock yarn balls if you like.
Every lefty will be unique and gorgeous.
And as it(tm)s made from sock yarn it(tm)s machine washable :)

There are some pictures in the instruction, so it(tm)s a bit bigger than usual but pictures say more than words.

You can simply adjust it in width and length.

It(tm)s a hard bit of work to knit a lefty because it will get rather heavy but it will be absolutely worth it!

Enjoy and happy knitting!
