EVERY WARDROBE NEEDS A STAPLE PIECE IN BLACK THAT CAN BE PAIRED WITH ANYTHING, AND WORK FOR ANY OCCASION

Why should your sock drawer be any different?

Worked cuff down with an easy to memorize cable pattern on the “seams’’. and a sweet purl stitch detail on the body, these socks are a rhythmic, simple knit that seasoned knitters and beginner sock enthusiasts can take joy and comfort in making, no matter the season. Sweet in spring, and cozy in winter, these socks will truly be the “little black dress” for your feet!

Pattern includes three variations for the sock: The original version which uses a forethought heel, a version with a heel flap/gusset, and a shorty sock version. Links to video tutorials are included in the pattern, as well as charts, written instructions, and photographs.
