The Solstice Slip


Designed by JC Briar
A slip stitch knit jig. Perfect little knit for a relaxing evening picnic or barbecue. Pour yourself a tall one and purl, slip, knit, knit, purl... Slip stitches zig-zag back and forth across the ribs of these socks, adding texture and creating splashes of color. A mini gusset ensures the short-row heel fits perfectly. Toe-up or top-down: the choice is yours!

  • Socks are worked either from the toe up or the top down.
