These socks are both really simple and really unusual. The prank here is that a simple pair of socks emerge in the strangest fashion. Because the pair is knit all at once, there will be no second sock syndrome… And if you can’t bear cutting the socks open, you can always wear your creation as a cowl!

This is the April installment of the Socks For All Seasons Pattern Club. For more info, go here.
