“Nauru (fin)- Laughter (eng)”

Nauru ankle socks are knit from the top down, with a traditional heel flap, heel turn, and gusset shaping. The pattern stitch itself is ridiculously simple - so simple that it makes you smile and laugh. Did you notice how the stitch pattern repeats on the heel flap? And can you guess what the best part is? No kitcheners stitch! Hah!

The pattern itself is written for three sizes, but it can easily be customized to fit whatever size one desires. Nauru ankle socks are perfect for summer knitting and wearing.

This pattern has been tech edited and test knit to ensure that the pattern is as clear, correct and consistent as it can be.
