“The Bare Necessities” is a song from the animated 1967 Disney film “The Jungle Book”.
in that song, the bear Baloo, a fun-loving and easygoing character explains to his friend Mowgli how, if you know the tricks, you can have a life of leisure while nature provides the best things for you.

fun and easy, this socks are quick to make because they are knitted in a sport weight yarn. as a result you get nice warm boot socks for those leisurely winter strolls through snowy nature.

the pattern works well with handspun, as it shows off your pretty yarn and at the same time hides imperfections - should there be any :^)
winding your yarn into 2 center-pull balls of equal weight before starting this toe up pattern allows you to make the most out of a skein of handspun without the fear of running out of yarn before the end.
