DIY Kit - Easy Socks - Dream (Merino Worsted)
DIY Kit - Easy Socks
These socks are worked in the round from the cuff to the toe. The instructions are written for working with circular needles and the Magic Loop method; use double-pointed needles if you prefer to not work with the Magic Loop method.
If you want to add length to the foot, work additional rounds before working Round 1 of the Toe. (You may need more yarn.)
Dream is our new name for Merino Worsted yarn. Though the name is different and we have a new palette of color offerings, nothing else about Dream has changed: it is the same yarn you know and love!
