Wimbledon Footlets – summer socks

Anyone for tennis?

The pattern for these light summer socks has been generously donated by long-time p/hop supporter and designer extraordinaire Ros Clarke.

These footlets make lovely summer socks, especially if knitted in yarn with some cotton, bamboo or tencel content.

The stripe pattern works best if the solid yarn (CC) is a neutral background colour and the main yarn (CC) is self-striping or variegated.

It would also work well as a way of using up scraps of self-striping yarn.

All patterns have been generously donated to the project by designers to raise funds for MSF and are available for your knitting and crocheting pleasure. In return, we ask that you make a donation to p/hop based on the hours of enjoyment you will get from these patterns. p/hop is based on an honesty box system and the amount you donate is completely up to you! Making your donation is easy.
