I love short socks. They are super quick to make.

These little beauties were born because I wanted to make some socks for my Dad. The Queensland weather doesn’t get too cold, so I thought some shorties would suit him.

I chose the Basket stitch pattern because it has a wonderful unisex detail. It’s also a fun pattern to knit. (just one more pattern repeat…)
