These 2 color brioche socks are knit toe up in fingering weight yarn using the magic loop method. The pattern is easily modified for any foot length with shaping at the heel for a snug fit. A simple textural brioche pattern mixed with a german short row heel makes for a comfy and quick knit! I used Hedgehog Fibres Twist Sock in Crystal (foreground) and Highlighter (background).

(NOTE: Yardage requirements are estimates, the final amount will depend on your foot length.)
