It doesn’t have to be the Fourth of July to have a Saturday in the Park; all you need is a blanket and your knitting. These socks are just the thing to grab for your chill day.

  • Finished Measurements: Youth Medium/Adult Extra Small) (Youth Large/Adult Small, Adult Medium, Adult Large, Adult Extra Large): 6 (6.5, 7, 7.75, 8.25)”/15 (16.5, 18, 19.5, 21) cm foot circumference. Sample socks shown with a 4″/10 cm leg length (measured from top of heel, customizable).
