I’ve kind of obsessed with making perfectly fitted socks (!)
I always do them toe-up, two-at-a-time on a Magic loop with gusset and a heel flap.
As my sock experience progresses I start to picture my own socks and I have this thing with knee-highs generously topped with a textured band to fold. My first attempt turned out quite successful and in time I will make a pattern for it.
Now I’m trying to make a pair in a sport weight-yarn with a striped top made from leftovers.

A very quick and satisfying little project.
When I put them in the washing machine I had no idea if these huge floppy socks eventually would fit the tiny feet of my daughter. They did :)
