Are you ready for a good time? How about a shortie sock with a few funky moves?

Bottoms Up are worked from the toe up with a brioche toe and sturdy heel that combines corrugated ribbing with brioche detailing. The ribbing undulates into all brioche, and the cropped leg is bound off by some beads that are ready to party!

There is also a simplified version of Bottoms Up that have a two-color toe and sturdy heel with corrugated ribbing… both versions of the pattern are included when you purchase it!

Bottoms Up combine a 50gr skein of sock yarn along with a mini-skein from Mitchell’s Creations a new-to-me brilliant dyer based outside of New Orleans.
