Ex Animo (pronounced: X-on-ee-moh) is Latin for ‘from the heart’. These socks are intended to be a knitted hug for your feet, a woolly expression of love and support. The all-over ribbing is designed to accommodate every part of your foot, and the arch shaping provides a little bit of extra structure and support through the instep.

Ex Animo is worked from the cuff down and features unique heel construction that doesn’t required any gusset stitches to be picked up, arch shaping immediately after the heel turn, and a rounded toe. The entire sock is worked in 2x2 ribbing, including the toe which is grafted closed.

Instructions are included for 5 circumferences and the foot length is customizable. The shaping instructions are both written and charted, and the instructions are needle neutral so you can use your preferred needle style and method for working in the round.
