Fox Faces – Super Special Six Sock Club #5

Fox Faces, toe up

Not quite have the same elegance as “chanel no. 5”, though these Fox Faces socks do have an elegance all their own.  I decided to combine the Fox Faces pattern by Nancy Bush from Super Special Six Sock Club #4 with #5’s toe up Wendy Johnson (Nanner) for this edition. I just find the toe up socks fit a bit better than my cuff down versions – all in the heel for me.

Yarn: Louet Gems 4ply – a fast favourite, lovely twist, in colourway Terra Cotta
Needles: 2.25mm and given the stretch in the pattern I could probably have knit the foot in 2.00mm
Who are they for: not me, they are a xmas gift for someone dear to me with slightly larger feet and that’s all I’m saying!

    How clever of you to do all this adjusting. I really like the ‘fox faces’ stitch pattern. Would be great to use it for something other than socks.
