Mile Forward Socks
Mile Forward Socks by Mara Licole
Socks are a great comfort. Grab a cozy pair of socks, your favorite hot beverage, and cuddle in bed with a movie or book of your choice and it is like the best instant comfort. This new decade came with renewed hope and promises but started on a gloomy note. During trying times like these, seeking comfort is one of our best options to help process the stress and find the motivation to move forward…one day…or mile at a time. Here’s to the rest of your year being unexpectedly awesome and better than you hoped!
Mile Forward socks are knit in the round from the toe to the cuff. They feature wedge toe shaping, the Fleegle heel method, and a central lace motif that travels gracefully up the leg. Because the lace motif is not mirrored, you will simply need to repeat the instructions to make two the same. This is a one-circumference-fits-many pattern but you can adjust the foot length and leg as you desire. The Fleegle heel method is a genius technique created by Susan Glinert Stevens A.K.A. fleegle on Ravelry. Thanks, Susan! While I knit my samples as cropped versions, you can make your leg longer if you’d like
