Granny's Attic Sock Kit by James N. Watts


Granny’s Attic Socks from James N. Watts are a frilly, fun, silly pair of socks. This pattern comes with instructions for two ornament styles: a very fluffy and full stockinette mohair two-tiered ruffle, and a doll like simple lace and picot edge two-tiered cufflet.

If fancy ruffley socks aren’t your thing, this also makes a perfectly good vanilla sock pattern, as the ruffles are added after completing the sock. Conversely you can absolutely take a hand knit sock you already made from a different pattern and retroactively add ruffles or lace to it with this pattern! Too neat.

What you'll get:

  • All the yarn needed to complete your project
  • Please note this yarn kit does not include a printed copy of the pattern. You can purchase a copy here.

    All hand dyed yarn is unique and no two skeins will be exactly alike. Please purchase enough yarn to complete your project. Alternating skeins is the best way to prevent possible pooling, flashing or a sudden shift of color. It's easy! Just work 1-2 row stripes from two balls of yarn (carrying the yarn up the side).

    We try hard to capture the essence of each colorway, but please keep in mind that colors may vary from monitor to monitor.
