Pretty Thrifty Socks


These socks are all about using up those extra little bits of sock weight yarn. If you’ve knit a pair of socks or two, you surely have some leftovers. If this is your first pair of socks, ask a sock knitting friend, you will be doing them a favor by taking some off their hands. And feel free to use all the leftovers, mix and match! Knit from the cuff down with an adjustable foot length.
