Summer nights camping under the stars, wintry evenings by the fireside, or long sleepy days spent on a warm couch—all call for luxurious thick socks.
This rustic looking pair, with thick and thin bumpy stitches, are designed to be used as a teaching pattern, for one friend to share the magic of sock knitting with another. They are fast, but satisfying, and you can work through cuff, heel, and gusset in one sitting together.
Once complete they are fulled a bit in the dryer to make them snug.
