Project info
Chocolate Orange Socks (aka Christmas Eve Cast On 2016 socks)
Needles & yarn
US 1 - 2.25 mm
Lilac Tree Yarns
Fingering (14 wpi)
Chocolate Orange


Cast on on Christmas Eve, joining in with the Little Bobbins Christmas Eve cast on. I cast on 66 stitches because I was going to knit the Honey Badger socks but after I’d knit the ribbing I decided I would just knit a vanilla sock to show off the yarn. I will decrease to 64 stitches when I get to the foot.


Finished. Instep feels slightly tight on 2.25mm needles but I like the fabric so when I knit on 2.25mm again will lengthen the heel flap, by 2 or three extra rows, which I think will allow for a bit more fabric in that area.

85 rows from heel flap to starting for toe decreases.
