Morganite is a fingering weight sock that’s both basic and interesting to knit. The simple texture pattern is easy to memorize and works great for breaking up tonal and variegated yarns. These lightweight socks knit up surprisingly quickly, with beautiful results.
These socks are worked from the cuff down in the round with a heel flap and gusset.
