Handmade socks are one of life’s true luxuries. It’s heavenly to wear a pair of socks made just to your own size specifications that are handcrafted from soft and luxurious yarns like alpaca and cashmere. It’s one of the best things about being a yarncrafter. Socks are also the perfect project to work on in warm weather or when traveling because they’re small, easy to manage, and wonderfully portable.

The Furrow Socks pattern, with its ribs reminiscent of the rolling rows of a landscape full of freshly plowed fields in the spring, provides the stretch needed for a crocheted sock’s easy fit , a satisfying texure that feels great on the soles, and timeless style.
