Ploughed Acre Knee Socks

Knit this toe up, short-row heel sock pattern and add a bit of glamour to a practical idea. Knee socks offer an extra layer of warmth underneath jeans or a skirt and with just a bit of simple lace, socks become, well…sexy, even when the thermostat’s turned down.

The pattern allows those who prefer shorter socks that option as well. The sample yarn used is from Elsa Wool Company, a Cormo sheep ranch in Colorado. The fiber is processed as gently as possible, and the owner, a lifelong farmer is committed to excellence in everything from sheep care to customer service. If your interest is in supporting natural fibers or U.S. small farms, this is a great yarn to consider for the socks…but any yarn of the appropriate gauge will work just fine.
