Schoolgirl bobbysocks

Pattern:  School Girl Socks by Cabinfour

Size:  Knit foot to 7″ before beginning texture (for a total length of 9″)

Needles:  US 3 dpns

Yarn:  Quince & Co Chickadee, color Egret – the pattern calls for two skeins, but I finished up with only one skein, with a few yards to spare

My only modification was to knit a S1k1 pattern for the heel, which in retrospect, I don’t think I like as well on this sock as plain stockinette, but I thought it might wear better.  These are a satisfyingly quick knit – I finished both on the (admittedly long) plane ride home from Turks & Caicos.  It would be fun to knit them in a whole variety of Quince & Co’s beautiful colors and wear them in the spring 🙂

  1. Those look incredibly comfy. 🙂 Do you have any boot cuff patterns you have tried?
