This wooly knit sock pattern is a tribute to our fiber friend, the sheep! The socks are worked from the toe up so that the happy, sleepy sheep face can be stitched on with very little fuss. The instep and leg have a textured appearance like a wooly fleece while the sole is smoother for comfort. The socks have a German Short Row heel.
The directions for this sock pattern are needle neutral. You can knit with either dpns or circular needles and the magic loop method.

My patterns are designed, not just written down, because I want your project to be a success!
Before knitting begins, I sketch ideas, test yarns, stitch swatches, create charts, do math and consider a variety of skills and construction methods. Each pattern uses standard knitting terminology and notations, is edited for technical accuracy and has a logical, easy-to-read format.
I do the work so you can relax and enjoy the knitting.
