Hi, I'm Ellen from The Chilly Dog. Welcome to my studio. I'm here to let you know that it is almost my favorite time of the year, knit a long time.
Once again, I'm teaming up with my friends from Makers' Mercantile, and this time we are going to be knitting my new
Double Feature Socks. These cute striped ankle socks are worked from the toe up.
They have a gusset and flap heel.
And you may have noticed they're fraternal, not identical twins.
Now you may be wondering, how did I come up with the name Double Feature Socks?
Well, first of all, the instep of the socks has a lacey, filmstrip-like pattern.
Also the socks are knit with two cakes of HiKoo Madrona yarn, which is super soft and yummy to work with.
Two cakes is going to be enough to make two, maybe even three pairs of the Double Feature Socks depending on what size you're knitting.
Now the pattern is written in needle neutral terms, so you can knit the socks using any type of needles you like, DPNs, flexi flips, magic loop, whatever works for you.
