I’m really pleased with the way these socks came out. The intended recipient was likewise pleased! In the picture they are posing in my back yard.

The particulars:

  • Yarn: Cascade Fixation in colors 3628 (red) and 8990 (black)
  • Needles: two 24″ circular Clover bamboo US#3 (3.25 mm)
  • Pattern: My own, coming soon
  • Techniques: Toe up, two at a time. Magic cast-on. Picot bind-off.
