Project: January Hedgerow Socks

Pattern: Hedgerow socks

Yarn: Malabrigo sock in Lotus

I decided a little while back that my Effervesce socks were not going to be finished in time for this month’s sock challenge. So I broke out a skein of Malabrigo and chose a simple, comforting ribbed sock pattern and went to town. I finished these up just in time for my January socks for Liesl’s challenge.

I enjoyed this pattern. It plays with the regular ribbing design and keeps things interesting by adding in a bit of texture using different stitches. I altered the pattern just a smidge and worked a short row heel rather than the heel flap + gusset. It took me a couple tries to get my picked up wraps looking pretty, but now that I have it figured out, I am definitely a fan of these simple heels.

These socks are a happy addition to my sock drawer and they are doing their job keeping my toes warm on this snowy Saturday.

  1. Beautiful! I’m using Lotus on a project at the moment, too, but mine is Rastita instead of sock. I can’t get enough of that amazing heel you did. I think its what my next one will be.

  2. those are absolutely gorgeous! And that was smart, making adjustments and going for a sock that you knew you could get off the needles a little faster. they are stunning.
