FO: TOFUtsies Trilobite Trainer (t)Socks

Sorry about the title, but I wanted to keep the alliteration going!

Wearing black socks to show off the pattern better.

Well once I’d rediscovered these socks in my UFO (UnFinished Object) pile it didn’t take me long to finish these bad boys.
Pattern and project: Trilobite Socks by Wendy D Johnson from the book “Socks from the Toe Up”. My Ravelry Project Link.

Fits perfectly with these cotton tennis shoes!

Notes and modifications:

  • Obviously, I omitted the leg!
  • Short row heel, no gusset increases.
  • Set of short rows worked on back of leg, immediately above the heel. This was done to raise the back of the sock up to help keep it on the foot.
  • A few rounds of 1/1 rib worked at the top.
  • Russian cast off method used.
