Inspired by a night when I couldn’t fall asleep and needed something to knit to calm my nerves, this sock was born. The socks, when finished, will look like you were up all night and got dressed while half asleep…the second sock is the inside out version of the first. A quick and easy knit, using sport weight yarn, this sock combines knits, purls, and simple yo/dec combos to make a sock that is easy but not boring. A solid/semi-solid will show off the pattern, while, to quote Girlymom, “it shows a strong colourway who’s boss”.

Currently available in two sizes: 8” and 9”. Between the two patterns and a variety of different gauges, you should be able to make these socks any size you’d like.
