this is Little Turtle Knits’ December Sock Club pattern.

The holiday hustle and bustle can leave you a bit frazzled, wishing for something comfortable to just slip on and relax in. These socks are the antidote to all that holiday stress—and the perfect project to cozy up with on one of those long, cold winter nights after the holidays have passed.

Wonderfully soft and plump farm wool and cotton combine in the yarn to make a pair of socks that are like your favorite pair of jeans. Cochineal and indigo dyed for a subtle two-layer shading, this yarn really is like your favorite jeans—they will soften and “wear in” with each time you pull them on. The intensive process that cochineal and indigo require make for a fabulous depth in the yarn. Like all good jeans, these socks will fade slightly over time—taking on the patina of broken-in denim. Like your well-loved Levi’s—these socks will give you years of wear and comfort!
