PATTERN DETAILS

These cheeky little socks are great for under kilts and skirts or over leggings. Perfect for keeping legs warm on fall evenings or spring mornings. Whether you are walking through the fog, kicking fallen leaves along a babbling river bank, or watching cherry blossoms fall on a blustery spring day. You will love these little knee high socks. If you suffer from second sock syndrome, or have issues with the inevitable one sock fitting a bit tighter than the other, this technique is the cure for what ails you. The little cable running up the back is a great touch and looks amazing on solid color socks. But as pictured you can also work them in self striping yarns or stripe them your self using two yarns. You can also make calf length or ankle length or any length socks by simply stopping at any height along the way. You could even work these as little scrappy socks to use up your odds and ends. I find toe up and two at a time a perfect solution for when you are not sure how far your yarn will go. This is perfect for using up odds and ends, or maybe knitting with some self spun yarn. Note: This pattern is written for women's sizes S/M/L with notes for extra small. If you have experience adjusting pattern sizing this pattern will allow you to knit any size sock following the rough outline provided and observing the ratio of change from size to size. This pattern was modified to be worked toe up, two at a time from.

In early childhood my grandmothers shared their love of crafting with me, ever since I have been crocheting, knitting, embroidering, quilting, sewing and painting. I enjoy making items I love, and want to share these items with others. My favorite things to make are both beautiful and useful, combining the appeal of function and winsome charm. I hope I can bring the feel of the years past, spent sitting with my grandmothers and great grandmothers, creating in the warmth and comfort of their homes to you.
