Vortices Socks

Regular price

Vortices socks are inspired by the many natural occurring vortices, from the powerful weather changing vortex in hurricanes or the simple swirling when you pull the plug on a bath.

Contrast heel and toes are optional you can knit this in all one colour or even use up scraps of old yarn, I have used West Yorkshire Spinners for my heel and toes.

Sock Tip, after placing waste yarn for the heel, knit about an inch in pattern then pick up the heel stitches, this allows you to try on the sock periodically so you knit the right length foot.
