A couple of months ago I started going to ballet classes. The elegant look in combination with the strict lines of the sock design reminded me of this fascinating type of dance and the barre which is an essential part of the ballet training.


This simplistic and beginner-friendly sock design is worked cuff down. The slip stitches create an elegant pattern throughout the whole sock and the rib ensures a comfortable fit. The DK weight yarn is knitted with 2.0 mm needles to create a firm and durable fabric.
