The Hygge Season Socks are knitted from the cuff downwards towards the toes. The socks are started with an optional Tubular Cast On which is easier than it sounds and explained in detail in the instructions. The Tubular Cast On provides a beautiful and stretch edge that looks like the stitches roll over the edge to the other side of the sock.

The heels are knitted in a reinforced stitch pattern for durability and the round French heels give the socks a good fit. The pattern includes adjustments for socks with higher insteps.

These socks are suitable for beginners who want to expand their skills beyond the very basics. They are also fun and effortless for the more experienced knitters - I knitted a big part of the leg of my first socks while chatting with my friends over a glass of wine. What can be more Hygge than that?
