Hugo by Stefanie Bold
my Father
Needles & yarn
US 00 - 1.75 mm
Lang Yarns Merino 400 lace
2.1 skeins = 457.7 yards (418.5 meters), 52 grams

my father wanted handknitted socks from very thin yarn. I was not successful in with the machine, therefore I looked for a handknitting pattern for very thin yarn.
Circumference is 84 sts in the round.

Unfortunately thin machine washable yarn is only available in colors mostly old people wear.
The yarn is great; I used it at least 20 times on the machine before I decided to knit some socks by hand.

The pattern is comfortable to knit and the socks have a snuggly fitting.

Many thanks for the free pattern!
