It’s all in the details! These socks are an enjoyable knit with a familiar construction and easy stitch patterns that keep you engaged throughout the pattern. Leena socks have plenty of texture and graphic shapes created by knit columns on a reverse stockinette base. But there’s a twist! The cuff is worked inside out, so you don’t need to do that much purling. The simple and subtle patterning allows for a more busy yarn as well, so go look at what treasures are hiding in your stash and cast on.


Materials
• Yarn: 1 skein of iKKe Merino Sock (80% merino, 20% nylon; 365 m / 399 yds per 100 g) or approximately 290 m / 317 yds of fingering weight yarn
• Needles: 2 mm / US 0 dpns or size needed to obtain gauge
• Stitch markers (optional)

The sample was knit using iKKe Merino Sock in Sparrow.

Gauge
24 sts x 46 rnds = 10 cm / 4” in stockinette stitch knit in the round after blocking.

Finished foor circumference: 18 cm / 7”

Notes
The socks are knit cuff down. The sample was knit with dpns, but the instructions are suited for all methods of sock knitting.
To minimize purling, the cuff is knit inside out and you turn the
sock around just before the heel flap.
All stitch markers are optional. Place them if you feel you need them. Knitting with dpns, I didn’t use them.
