Slip Away

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

Slip those worries away as you work your way through this fun slipped-stitch pattern and create an awesome pair of socks. The pattern looks equally fab in a highly variegated skein and a more tonal colorway.


  • Finished Measurements: Small (Medium, Large): 6.75 (7.75, 8.75)“/17 (20, 22) cm foot circumference. 54 (62, 70) sts total. Leg length is measured from top of heel and is completely customizable. Socks in Extended Camping Trip are shown with a 3”/7.5 cm leg length, and socks in Lemongrass are shown with a 4”/10 cm leg length (measured from the top of heel).
