These socks are fun to make out of any speckled yarn that finds its way into your stash – they are mostly-stockinette, with a fun β€œv” pattern working their way up the foot and leg, it’s enough fancy footwork to keep you interested, but not so much that you miss what’s happening on Supernatural…

I’ve recently (March 2018) added a variation, using garter stitch around the β€˜v’ motifs, and I’ve fallen head-over-heels for this one, too!

Please note that in order for the pattern to look correct, you MUST use the traditional SSK instructions!
