Introducing my latest design: The Hanuman Ankle Socks!

Image

These stashbusting ankle socks are the perfect way to use up partial balls of sock yarn. Mix and match contrasting colors for a colorblocking and striping extravaganza. These feminine socks feature an eye-catching picot cuff, an afterthought heel and a rounded toe. Size – standard women’s.

Materials:

Two colors of fingering-weight yarn. In the example, I used Stricken Smitten Simply Sock (blue) and Enchanted Knoll Farm EKF Superwash Sock Yarn (green). You’ll need 125 yards or less of each.

Size US 0 to 2 (2.0mm, to 2.75mm) needles or size needed to obtain gauge. (I am a loose knitter so in the example, I used size 1). You can use whatever needles you prefer for small-diameter knitting (DPNs, 2 circulars or a long Magic Loop needle).

Gauge:

8 stitches/inch in stockinette stitch.

I’ve been doing a lot of reading about yoga and the Hindi god Hanuman sort of spoke to me when I was devising these socks. So I named the pattern after him.

I hope you like these fun little socks! The pattern is available on Ravelry.
