Socks Perfect for Hawthorne

Sock season is just around the corner so we’re highlighting patterns perfect for Hawthorne, hands-down my favorite sock yarn! Sturdy but soft, this yarn is machine-washable and will stand up to some seriously heavy use. Stacey’s Go Your Own Way free sock pattern is a great, basic top down or toe up project. Shown in Wisp and Serpent tonal, you can use one hank of your favorite fingering weight colorway to whip up a pair just in time for the first frosty morning!
