Boyfriendly socks

Posted by Nicole. Comment (0).

So I made the boy a pair of socks for being an all-around good sport (plus, he bought me a boatload of expensive yarn, and who doesn’t love a generous guy)? I didn’t use a pattern, because boy socks don’t have to be that fancy, so it’s just a simple toe-up 4×2 and 3×2 rib. I started them two at a time on the same needle, and then remembered how much I hate that, so separated them. I did short row heels using Priscilla Gibson-Roberts’ method (pdf), which I really liked.


I had such a good time making these socks that I decided to make a pair of socks for myself. They’re purple and adorable. Will post photos when finished.
