This knitting pattern is great for those of you out there who love knitting socks! I like to make them sometimes, when I need a project where I don't have to think too much and can just knit round and round whilst talking or travelling. Socks are not something I could make all of the time because I need variety (I know people who just LOVE making socks and can't get enough!).
For this pattern I used 4ply Patons yarns in pastel colours and they knit up really well. You can substitute the yarns in your own colour choices of course. I started another pair in greys and purples but haven't got round to finishing them yet!
I hope you enjoy making!
