Louie socks – a couple of lovely knitted socks that will keep you warm all winter, inspired by the Louie pillow! Knitted in the round, from the toe and up. Easy to knit and the perfect gift if you like to knit for others. You’ll cast on using the Turkish cast on-technique, and making the heel with the German Short Rows-technique. The colorwork makes it easy to knit and you’ll want to make more after your first pair.
Perfect from Sandnes Garn is a lovely sock yarn, with a little bit of nylon in it, making it durable.
Pick two of your favorite colors, and knit your next pair of wooly socks, because winter is coming! Choose two contrasting strong colors, or choose a more neutral palette. We will knit many of these in the years ahead!
