Plain Vanilla Socks is knitted toe up with magic loop method. Minimal configuration without gusset and ribbing makes the knitting done smoothly, and use of extra fine needles makes the fit of this sock fine-tuned and comfortable.
Different colors can be used for toes and cuffs, along with rounds of FOOT and LEG section. Also, by using helical stripes technique, which creates fine stripes in spirally shifting color change in a round at a time, this sock can transform hand-dyed yarn in a different intensity than the original colors. Plain Vanilla socks’ dense stockinette stitches bring out the unique characteristics of any yarn. Enjoy designing and expressing your own taste.
