My girl loves handknit socks, and I don’t normally love knitting them… but I decided if I designed them while I knit her a pair they would get done… and they did!

I used a simple drop stitch pattern I’ve been obsessed with (Synthesis, Spirit Shawl, Crucero....) and made it migrate around the leg, just to keep things interesting.
These aren’t complicated socks, but they are amusing, so sock novices and more advanced sock knitters should both have a great time with them!
