There is nothing more satisfying than squishing a big pile of handmade socks!

When I released my first volume of these quick knits in the summer of 2020, they quickly became one of my most popular pattern sets. Shorty socks work up so fast, it almost feels like cheating! Like the patterns in the original set, these three new additions to the Shorty-verse are easy enough for beginners, while incorporating fun new skills that you can apply to other sock
patterns as well!

Any of the fun tricks (like the arch support band!), fades, or embellishments from my first collection of shorty sock patterns can be applied to these new patterns, and vice versa! Feel free to experiment, creating a unique collection of socks that are all your own!
