Austermann Step Socks On Their Intended Feet
Knitting these socks was so enjoyable. The yarn is soft from the aloe vera and jojoba oil, yet still nice and wooly. I used my regular sock pattern and sized it up a bit for Dave. I drove him crazy as I made him try them on every few rows to get the toes just right......they fit perfectly! The plan is that these will be his hockey coaching socks - toasty warm for those cold rinks.
Pattern: My Own - cuff down on 68 stitches
Yarn: Austermann Step (color 04)
Needles: US 1 (2.25mm) 2 socks on 2 circular
