A couple of summers ago, I knit two pairs of ankle socks for Bill to wear golfing; they were a smashing success, and he requested a new pair, which I just finished. He claims they are more comfortable and less sweaty than store-bought cotton socks, even though they are wool. A pair takes about one 50-gram ball of sock yarn -- I used wool/nylon Scheepjes Invicta Extra -- so this is a good stash-buster; plus I used yarn left over from Roza's Socks for the contrasting cuff.
No pattern, but here are my notes, in case you're interested:
- c.o. 68 (CC)
-8 rnds k2tbl,p2 rib
-1 rnd k all –> MC –> 5 rnds k all
-short-row heel on 34 (to 12)
-toe dec. every other rnd (to 24)
And that's it! Simple sockies. How happy am I that Bill prefers ankle socks to traditional golf stockings? Phew.
