So far, all the hand knitted socks I’ve made have been regular crew length socks for myself, and anyone else. Addie loves the socks I make for her and said they’re the only ones that keep her toes warm in the winter but she likes short socks. I want to make her a few pairs of short socks and see if she likes them . . I think she will.
There are many patterns for short socks but really . . it’s just a short sock so, for the most part, use any pattern you want and make them short. Here are a few patterns specifically for short socks that I have in my library.
These are also great for using leftovers of sock yarn. The So Faded pullover I did had plenty of leftover yarn to make several pairs of these socks. What I do with the leftover yarn is weigh what’s left, then wind half of it off onto another ball. Then wide the remaining yarn onto a second ball. By winding both, I can pull from the center and if there is any pattern/striping to the yarn, both socks will be going the same way. I had one ball that had 70 grams so I wound off 35 grams onto a ball, cut it, then wound 35 grams more into a second ball. Now I can do two socks at once, working from each separate ball. Make sense? I think it was a lot of words for a very simple procedure.
