I recently ran across a chunky sock pattern on Ravelry that I HAD to make! I thought they were cute and would be great to keep my feet warm around the house. I had no idea when I got started how cute they'd look with my wellies...
They're soft, warm, and make my wellies feel and fit better!
The "Cottage Socks" pattern is free on Ravelry and the Lion Brand website. I knit them with two skeins of Michael's Loops and Threads Charisma yarn and size 10 1/2 double point needles. I made them long enough to go up to my knees and fit me perfectly. However, when my daughter modeled them for pictures, I found it interesting that, even though we're the same height, our leg proportions are very different...they don't reach her knees!
They were super simple and quick to make...except for the gussets. I had so much trouble with them and I'm not sure why. But, I was determined to make these and just kept working until I got it! The pattern was a bit confusing on the toe part. So, I tweeked them and made them work. I finished the toe with about eight stitches across (eight in the front and eight in the back) and kitchener stitches.
I love 'em!
