. . . never say never . . .

About a year ago I told a friend I would never, ever knit socks. Maybe I could try to knit one pair … But then after that one pair I would never do it again … swear.

Now – a few socks later – I am getting obsessed by socks, haha.

‘Never say never’ has been published today.

These socks are knit toe up with stripes at the toes, heel and ribbing. The instep and leg have a cute little stitch pattern with nearly perfectly round holes. The heel is worked with short rows (instructions included) Tutorials to work the increases are also included.
