A while ago now I made some bed socks for my most favourite girl in the world.
Since then they have been well loved. As they were so well loved I had no issues with making another pair.
Only problem was I don’t quite know where that pattern book is. Maybe under the couch somewhere, but it’s lost at the moment.
So I did a bit of research and found nothing I really liked.
I did find a really cute mitten pattern which is only in Swedish but I thought I could figure it out and make it into some socks.
Using size 7 needles and Moda Vera Jet bulky yarn I cast on 8 stitches using Judy’s magic cast on
Then increased every second row until it fit my foot.
Then I switched colours and did a few rows of purling, switched colours and did a few rows of knitting.
There was no heel so I just kept trying it on until they were long enough.
Alternating the colours whilst doing two at a time is something I like doing a) because it creates odd socks that match and b) because it means you don’t have to wind the yarn into two balls. You just start with each colour and then swap. You do end up with a lot of ends though.
I’m hoping that with use the heel will magically appear and they’ll look less like woolen condoms.

delightfully mis-matched 🙂
Just because they’re odd doesn’t mean they can’t match 🙂
lol… not odd, rather an audaciously bold and eclectically inclined fashion statement ❤
Somehow you, the socks, and this post cracks me up. I love that thinking out of the box. LOLOLOLOL
I’m glad 🙂 I don’t think I’m that unique until I compare myself with other people. Even then I don’t do that too often.
It is said that opposites attract.
I prefer odd in my socks, I am the only one who gets to enjoy it anyway! It’s like painting your toenails when you always wear closed-toed shoes, it’s all for you!
Exactly! Go nuts.
Just think of all the money that could be saved by never having to replace a pair of socks that somehow has lost its mate. That in itself in the world economy today makes it a worthy suggestion.
Sounds weird but even if they don’t look the same I still want them to be he same type.
I only like odd socks if they’re different patterns. I don’t like wearing one ankle sock and one knee high sock (extreme example yes).
LOLOLOL Yes, I would agree that one ankle sock and one knee sock would be going a bit too far; yet, I could see someone doing it. I do think it is quite clever how you have achieved the same but different concept. Myself as yet I have never even been brave enough to knit a pair of socks!
These socks would be fine in our house where odd socks are the norm (I can never pair them all up fast enough!) I LOVE them.
