These socks are a fun tribute to our wooly, fiber friend, the sheep.

The socks are worked from the toe up and have a German, aka Double Stitch, short row heel. The face of each sheep is stitched on after the toe is knit. The tweedy yarn has little flecks of color.

The leg and instep of the sock are worked with a textured stitch to imitate a wooly fleece. The sole of the sock has a smoother stitch for comfort.

Since these socks are worked from the toe up, the leg can easily be adjusted to your desired height.
