DIY Kit - Happy Socks - Dream (Merino Worsted)
DIY Kit - Happy 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 in Color 1 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!

NOTE: A tapestry needle may be helpful when securing all loose ends.

Care: Dry clean or hand wash cold, lay flat to dry. Please test any washing/drying method on a small swatch to ensure you like the end result. Note that exposing wool to heat (hot water) or agitation (machine washing) will cause it to felt.
