Crochet socks? Is that possible? Yes, yes it is. We hear a lot about knitting socks, but you can crochet some really cute and comfy socks too. Regina picked out an awesome pattern by crochet sock guru, Karen Whooley, for us to work on together. Karen has even given us an exclusive coupon code for the Mix & Match Cuff Down pattern. Just for us!
The plan for this crochetalong or CAL is that we will meet on Saturdays in February to take on this fun project. The pattern is a beginner sock pattern so it is not intimidating. Note that this is NOT a class. This is a community event to enjoy each other's company and our mutual love of yarn.
On top of coming together and yarning together, we will also have a giveaway! The winner will get a digital copy of Karen Whooley's book Crochet Rocks Socks. This book has 7 original crochet sock designs all inspired by rock n roll music.
