There are so many beautiful, knee-long socks out there, most of them knitted in fine yarn. And what makes them special? The knitted patterns!
Have you seen these Norwegian patterns?
I want Norwegian socks, but crocheted in chunky yarn, and with pattern!
In Norway we have this tradition with multi-colored patterns. For decades cardigans, sweaters, hats, mittens and socks have been knitted in wool, with local variations in the pattern-designs. Integrated in the pattern there always are these contrast distance-stitches, which “crawls” all over the garment. That’s why the cardigans are called “Lusekufte”; Lice-cardigan!

I wanted “Lice” on my socks, but first I had to figure out how to do it, in the middle of the double crochet stitches. Done! Not difficult! And very easy and fast-worked in a chunky yarn.

We all know about socks’ limited wearing time. Sadly enough; The heels are the critical point!
What about protecting your new socks with soft, chunky and warm crochet soles?
Or better; Can you imagine to be able to wear your socks as boots ………. ON THE STREET ?
It’s possible! See additional images!
