Hippie Chic socks combine a contemporary yet classic pattern with a trendy, artisanal sock yarn to create a stylish and unique sock that is above all comfortable. Your feet will be stylish and warm in your favorite boots while you walk around the late fall farmer’s market, head out to the pumpkin patch, or walk your dog and pick up a latte. Worked from the cuff down, Hippie Chic socks feature a cozy garter pattern on the front and back of the leg. The slipped stitches highlight the subtle variegation of this beautiful Socklove yarn. The stitch pattern continues onto the heel flap and top of the foot. The sock ends with a rounded toe that is grafted closed using Kitchener stitch.
