Socks for Sammy

This is a very minimalist and flexible pattern. It is written for two circular needles, but can easily be adjusted for double-point needles or magic loop. It should be perfect for using up some leftover sock yarn, or for experimenting with a new one. The sizing depends on the weight of yarn you use and is very approximate. Those darn babies come in so many sizes!


Proceeds from this pattern all go to sweet little Hazel’s college fund. No her name isn’t Sammy, but that’s what Parna and I nicknamed her before she was born and before we knew whether she was a she or a he!

Buy it online from Ravelry or purchase a hard copy from our web store.
