Yarn: Sockotta (45% cotton, 40% superwash wool, 15% nylon)
Needles: Size 3 Addi Turbo
Pattern: Knit from i-cord on down until it fit. 120 stitches around.
Note: I purchased this yarn from theknitter.com. Unfortunately, the picture on the site only shows the pink, orange, and yellow stripes. In actuality, the yarn has a jacquard row between each colour stripe. I'm anti-jacquard. It's my least favourite feature in a sock yarn. I am constantly seeking fine stripes without jacquard. I was very disappointed to find that this yarn had the jacquard in it. Instead of becoming a favourite pair of socks, I'm using it for other things, for people who won't spit in anger every time they see that little row of spottiness.
