Bobby Gym Socks Pattern

Regular price $ 7.00


Socks are fun to knit, and a pop of color on the toes of these socks makes them fun to wear as well. This pattern was written for a light yet durable cotton blend for long-time wear. The ribbed leg design gives them a fit that is comfortable yet snug. Socks that are so playful he or she will want to kick off their shoes, but so pleasant they’ll keep their socks on! This sock is knit from the top down to the toe and the heel is shaped using short-rows. As a bonus, the knitting pattern is written with the option of making the traditional mid-calf length or short ankle socks. Get out your needles and start smiling.

Sophisticated, elegant, stylish, chic. After seeing James’ collection, I may give up needlepoint.

These designs take men's sweaters to a whole new level of luxury and deliciousness. Might have to get a new man once my divorce goes through, just so I can knit him a James Cox Knits sweater.
