MIDNIGHT DANCER SOCKS
Ruffle socks by Sari Nordlund

Finally a pair of wool socks that feel at home on the dance floor!

The Midnight Dancer socks are simple socks with ruffled cuffs. They are simple enough for the office and work beautifully as party accessories especially when knitted with glittery yarn! The ruffles also look cute with boots.

The socks are knitted from the cuff down. Two options are given for the heels: a more minimalistic short row heel and a sturdier heel flap and gusset combination especially intended for boot socks. All special techniques are explained in the pattern. The socks are best worked with the magic loop technique, but can also be worked on DPNs.
