These socks are worked from the toe up using the Magic Loop method and a standard short row heel. The socks can be knit two at a time as the pattern for each sock is identical. In case of using DPNs, assume that the Front Needle is synonymous with Needles 1 &2, and that the Back Needle is synonymous with Needles 3 & 4.

The Story:
These socks are truly a labor of love… the smocking effect when completed is gorgeous but it’s time consuming and delightfully fiddly. It’s as simple as that.
