Feel Better Socks
Knit during a bout of Covid, these toe-up self-stripe socks are the perfect combination of entertainment and relaxation. A self stripe yarn for variety and an easy to memorise cable up one side to add interest.
The sample as shown used a 50g skein of self stripe yarn with a 20g contrast skein for heels, cuffs and toes - for the size M.
If knitting for a larger foot you would either need to use an alternative 100g skein of self stripe yarn, or have more contrast yarn on hand for a longer cuff.
