Hucklebuck House Socks
The Hucklebuck is a jazz dance tune from the 1940s composed by Andy Gibson. A light-hearted, fun reach into the past. So put on your dancing socks and
“Wriggle like a snake - waddle like a duck; That’s what you do when you do the hucklebuck.”
Fraternal twin, top-down socks to keep your toes toasty warm. With a tiny touch of cable, these socks are a perfect solution for the “no fuss” sock knitter and wearer. The pattern uses a traditional slip-stitch heel and Stockinette foot with wide toe. Directions are included for using alternate colours on the toes only.
