Treat your feet to all that is sweet with these adorable animal socks! Your feet will be so happy to have 2 new furry friends, or "Pawsome Pals" you might call them ;). These ultra cute socks feature 3 animal options - a Koala, a Fox, and a Pig, with their irresistible poking up ears. They also each feature a lovable little saying on the heel, including "Hug Me" (not pictured but included in the pattern :), "Foxy Lady", and "Oink!" for extra charm. These socks come in every size to accommodate the whole family, from 3 years old to adult, so no one will be left without a set of cuddly critters! The socks are knit from the toe up with the option of adding a contrast toe and heel for extra style.
This pattern includes a photo tutorial of how to knit the cute little ears! The instructions are given for using double pointed needles, with the option of using a circular needle for the magic loop method, though I found it easiest to knit the ears using dpns. In case you are new to socks, I made a video tutorial for you showing you all of the techniques used to knit toe up socks including how to cast on for the toe, work the increases for the toe, and knit the short row heel in the pattern :)
The face and heel are given as color charts to be applied by duplicate stitch after the sock is finished (link to a video tutorial included). It also has a blank template so you can design your own animal sock! There are two ear options, round and pointed, so as long as your animal design has rounded or pointed ears it will work!
Sizes: XS - XL to fit ages 3-5, 5-9, 7-12, Adult S/M, and Adult M/L. Foot Length and Sock Height are custom with helpful links and tips if making these as a gift.
This sock design calls for 150-280 yards of fingering weight yarn (depending on the size you make) and size US 1 (2.25mm) and US 2 (2.75mm) double pointed needles or circular needles. The gauge is 31 stitches and 42 rows = 4 inches in Stockinette Stitch using larger needles. For more info, and to view projects from other knitters, please visit the Ravelry page here:
