Sporty Shorties Pattern

Sporty Shorties Pattern




During the summer months I love running around barefoot or in sandals. For those times when I need to be wearing some tennies, I prefer a super short, sporty sock.


Knit cuff-down with heel flaps and sport weight yarn. Both socks are identical and can be knit simultaneously if desired. Great to use up scraps too!




Designed for Sport weight yarn.
