I have knit countless pairs of socks in my lifetime, but these are the ones that I always go to first for my comfy, hang out around the house socks. I hate to play favorites, but if I had to pick, these are definitely my number one pair.
Playing Favorites are the perfect squishy DK weight socks, with a fun eyelet design that keeps them from getting too warm. These are knit top down with a German short row heel. Because they’re a shorter DK weight sock, they knit up quick and make a fantastic gift knit.
