This will be an entry in the Q1 Challenge for the Pigskin Party. I’m following my recipe from a previous pair of marled shortie socks.
10/24 – Finished! These were so much fun. They’re going to be super warm. I made them long enough for Emma so they’ll be a Christmas gift for her.
I used my basic sock recipe. I joined in new colors using the clasp weft join technique, but I still also wove in each end a little bit to avoid the end eventually working itself out to the outside of the sock as happened with a hat I did using this join and not weaving in the ends. Just a little extra security!
