Knitting Project - Socks With Warm Colorful Stripes
Another cozy pair of socks to keep the feet snuggy and warm during the winter. The colors here have a warm feeling to them and were knitted with the sock yarn from Lana Grossa, “Solo Colore”, color number 5253. The yarn is fun to knit with because the color blend soft and not so abrubt like with other yarns and also the color combinations look appealing.
The socks were knitted with 5 needles. (4 to hold the sock in the round and the 5th needle is the working needle).The cuff of these socks were knitted in a ribbing stitch (2 k, 2p). At the point of the heel, the front of the socks continued in this pattern and the heel and sole were then knitted using only knitting stitches.
To knit socks with the classic heel, like the pair below, you will find on the Lana Grossa website instructions to guide you through the process.
