Knit Original Cuff-Down Socks »
Type of item: Accessory
Lion Brand Wool-Ease in SeaSpray (pale blue/green/grey)
What was your inspiration?
I wanted to make a pair of socks for my brother in law that were warm, but also washable. I had a few balls of Lion Brand Wool-Ease left over from another project, and looked through patterns from this workshop to see what I could use it for.
What are you most proud of?
Figuring out what size needles and how many stitches to use in order to make a pair of men's size 8 socks.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
It takes a bit of calculating to figure out how many stitches to use, and what size needles to get the right size. A test swatch is a great tool!
