Is it just me or is the wallpaper staring at me? Inspired by the classic creepy decor of a certain spooky mansion that started its life in Anaheim and has since travelled around the globe, these haunted socks will add some creepy cool flair to your feet. The socks are worked top down with twisted stitches and cables. They have a heel flap designed to flow seamlessly into the cable pattern. So get your grim grinning feet out to socialize!

Size/Yardage Notes
Cables eat yarn! If you are making the Large size and only have 1 skein of sock yarn you will only have enough yarn to do 1 repeat of the 999 Happy Haunts Chart on the leg, so your sock will have the shorter 3.5”/8.9cm leg option.

Sample shown in photos is Medium Size with the 6.5”/16.5cm Leg.

The pattern is written for magic loop or Addi FlexiFlips, but includes instructions for using DPNS.
