A Pine Tree Sock

Pattern: Pine Tree Socks by Katherine Misegades, free pattern here
Yarn: Dale Heilo, 3 skeins of 50g
Needles: 3 mm


The Katherine Misegades sock is made with a special heel, which is very cool. There are no short rows, and no picking up stitches. There are no special heel stitches and this allows the patterning to flow all the way down the back.


They are super comfortable. I love that they are nice and long. Also, the way the sock is angled gives it a shape that fits my foot very nicely. Now I am almost looking forward to the cold so that I can wear my Pine Tree Socks. As soon as I finish the other one, of course.
Thank you, Katherine!

Also, my user name on Ravelry is mohairkid. Or The Mo-hair Kid as we like to say it 'round these parts.

  1. Mo-hair kid needs a brand so them wool rustlers won't steals yer wool. you'd have to get a posse together armed with needles and lasso with a circular. still, branding would make it easier.

    nice sock, tex.
