The weather’s finally getting warmer so it’s time to get out from under a pile of clothes and show some handknit socks. And I’ve got the shoes to go with!
On Ravelry: Camouflage Stockings
Yarn: 351 m/384 yards of Novita Nalle Colori (75% superwash wool/25% polyamide) in colorway #833 (olive tones/camouflage)
Needles: 3.0 mm for foot, heel and ankle; 3.5 mm for leg and ribbing; 4.0 mm for upper leg (calf shaping)
The calf shaping is done by going up in needle size (twice!) so these are super easy to knit. I will say, though, that I’m not hugely fond of the resulting fabric. The 4.0 mm needles were a bit too large and the fabric looks loose. (But the socks fit quite nicely, no complaint there.)
And I finally got around getting buttons for Hannah.
