Hemma is the swedish word for home,which is just where you need these soft socks to snuggle up with a good book and a large cup of your favourite tea.

Hemma socks are two-colored socks with a cuff with three rows of contrasting bobbles, separated by purl rows. The heel is knitted in the contrasting color, just like the decorative purl row that’s marking the toes.

The socks are knitted top-down and the pattern is written for double pointed needles, though it would be easy to knit with magic loop instead if that’s your preference.

Yarn choice:
You need two colors of fingering weight yarn. You need at least 50 grams of your main color and 15-20 grams for your contrasting color.

The pattern is written in one-size but it is easy to adjust both circumference and length with the instructions.
