Flexor

This easy knit is ideal as an introduction to sock knitting and great for knitting on the go. These afterthought heel socks can be knitted from the top down or the toe up, perfect for experimenting with direction. Choose your favourite self-patterning yarn, paired with contrast heels and toes for happy dancing feet.

Materials

West Yorkshire Spinners Signature (4 ply; 75% wool, 25% nylon; 400m/437 yds per 100g skein)
MC Shade: Blue Tit; 1 x 100g ball
CC Shade: Butterscotch; 1 x 100g ball

Yardage per size varies. Baby and toddler (allow 30g MC and 10g CC), child (allow 40g MC and 10g CC), adult sizes will depend on the size and foot length, allow up to 100g MC and up to 40g CC depending on size.
