THEY’RE HERE! You guys – don’t tell my other patterns but this might be my favourite yet! The shag carpet shorties were inspired by 70s macrame, vintage upholstery, and this stunning Allison Barnes colourway. These socks are knit from the top down, with a heel flap and gusset, and knit up quickly using a DK weight yarn. Gorgeous cables cover the entire leg and foot of the sock, and blend seamlessly into the toe. You only need one skein of DK weight yarn to make these socks, so what are you waiting for?!
I used the Classic DK from Allison Barnes, in the colour Shag Carpet.
