Sock the vote. Swing left.
Here at Little Skein, we believe in kindness, lending a helping hand, and equality for all. If you believe as we do, please join us in a knitalong and Swing Left vote-along.

Kits are available at littleskein.

We’ve partnered with designer Megan Williams to bring to life a sock design that could become an emblem of the idea to stand up, be visible and Swing Left in the mid-term elections.

  • They can be knit toe-up or cuff-down.

  • They have a soothing left-swinging motif on the front of the sock with a plain stockinette panel on the back from speedy knitting.

  • They feature a slipped stitch heel and gusset, which a majority of knitters find to be the best-fitting style.

  • They are well within the skill level of a beginning sock knitter and entertaining enough for more experienced sock knitters.

  • They can be knit in one-color or two-colors (the two-color version has slipped stitches to make for easy color play).

  • These socks are for everyone who shares the vision of a more perfect union.

6 sizes from child to adult extra large.
