Good as Hell

In Cuff Down, Fingering weight yarn, Patterns, Socks, Toe Up by Shannon


These socks have me tossing my hair, checking my nails, and feeling Good as Hell. I think you’ll agree with tester Melynda M., who said this about this pattern:

“One row we twirl, the next row we unfurl & purl, then knit & slip.
Easy to memorize, and a beautiful texture.”
