I was wondering about putting holes in socks on purpose, and this is what developed. It’s an easy pattern; there are double yarn-overs, which you work with one knit and one purl stitch in the next row, and the rest is pretty much just plain knitting.
I used Jojoland Melody Superwash Fingering yarn in colour MS12 (a really lovely dark blue and burgundy shading), two balls of 220 yards (200 m) each to make socks with 10″/25 cm long feet and 10″/25 cm legs from top of the cuff to the bottom of the heel, and had a fair bit left over.
If you find a mistake or something that isn’t clear, please leave me a comment so I can correct it. Even if you don’t find a mistake, please leave me a comment (we bloggers thrive on comments, doncha know)!
