Tailgate is an experiment in sock construction. These shortie-socks are worked from the cuff down and feature unique heel and gusset construction designed to highlight self-striping yarn.

This unique construction results in very roomy gussets that may not accommodate all feet (if you have a high instep, you might love these socks). Instructions are included to modify the gussets to fit your feet.

This pattern includes optional arch shaping and a star-toe. The pattern has been tech edited and test knit. Instructions are included for 5 circumferences, and foot length is customizable. The instructions are written only and are needle-neutral so you can use your preferred needle style and method of working small circumference in the round.
