Whale Done Socks - Knitting Pattern PDF
This toe-up sock pattern was designed for my first ever skill building KAL (knit along). The socks feature a figure eight cast on, star toes, shadow wrapped short row heels and a suspended bind off and can have a short cuff, as shown, or a longer length cuff.
The KAL begins on August 1, 2017, and there will be free tutorials for each technique used in this pattern throughout the month. For more information about the KAL and a list of links to each tutorial, visit my blog at http://www.thechillydog.com/2017/08/whale-done-socks-kal.html.
This listing is for a printable version of the sock pattern. The tutorials will only be available on my blog, but will remain accessible even after the KAL is completed.
