July 2010 - Summer Socklets

Most of us think socks are for those cold winter days but here is a way to enjoy your socks in the summer as well. Perfect for sneakers and sandals, these lightweight socklets are quick and easy to knit and fun to wear. A 50gr. ball of your favorite cotton blend is all it takes to knit these great little socks. We, here at Have a Yarn, are pleased to let you know that we have just received some fabulous new Cotton Stretch yarns ready for all your summer knitting needs.


By using one of your favorite sock patterns and a little change to the cuff and leg you can create wonderful summertime socks.

CO the required # of stitches and rib (K2, P2) for 12 rows. Then stocking stitch another 8 rows, more if you wish. Now you jump right into knitting the heel flap and proceeding as your pattern instructs you. After knitting the foot the desired length, toe off and weave in all ends. Nothing could be simpler. These wonderful socks are quick to knit and make great gifts for all your family and friends. Enjoy!
