Dad Socks

My dad’s feet get cold, and his circulation’s not so great, so I wanted to knit him some thick warm socks to wear around the house. The DAD SOCKS are sumptuous, supremely cozy & gorgeous, especially when knit in a luxurious alpaca/merino tweed blend such as City Tweed.

Knit these in a single color or do a contrasting color for the heel flap & toe; knit the cabled heart heel flaps or plain heel flaps, either in a single or contrasting color. Despite all the details – mirrored cables, honeycomb cables, ribbed gussets, patterned heel flap – these knit up amazingly quickly.

(A natural companion to the Wanna Hold Your Hand Mitts-- Ed.)
