The Scraptastic Luxe Socks are the fancy sister of the Scraptastic Socks. This pair uses five 20-gram minis and features simple twisted stitches on a stockinette backdrop. What makes them luxe? A yummy strand of mohair carried throughout. Go on, indulge a little.

This pattern DOES NOT COME WITH HEEL INSTRUCTIONS. It is designed to work best with the Fish Lips Kiss Heel (or similar short row heel) or an afterthought heel. A heel flap and gusset can be substituted, but it will take some planning ahead. If you have a few pairs of socks under your belt, you’ll have no trouble subbing in your favorite heel!

Purchase of this pattern includes TWO PDFs. One with cuff down instructions and another with toe up instructions. Two patterns in one!

| YARN |

  • 20 grams {90 yards} of fingering weight in 5 colors.
  • 50 grams {480 yards} of mohair lace weight to be held with fingering weight yarn in one color.
  • Each sock will use approximately 10 grams {or less} of each color, so 20 grams of a single color is plenty to make a pair of matching socks in any size.
  • These socks are designed to use those leftovers bits of sock yarn or mini-skein sets!

| SIZES |
