delicious stripey knee socks!

...fun in the back!

You’ll have lots of fun knitting and wearing these striped knee socks! Knit a custom fit in a variety of foot sizes and calf sizes – over forty size combinations. A slipped stitch “seam” up the back of the leg hides the usual jog between the stripes and looks pretty too. If you don’t want stripes, just knit them in a beautiful solid colour for socks you’ll reach for all the time!

These socks are knit in the round from the toe up, with a Turkish/Eastern cast on and short row heel. Also included are notes on how to knit a pair of over-the-knee socks!
