Get Zen & Cozy when you new knit Yoga Socks! This is a great Quick Knit for the New Year!
The New Year is a great time to focus on our fitness, well-being, balance, and where else is better to start than with YOGA?!?! I thought that these YOGA SOCKS would be a really fun quick knit to start the new year. They’re cozy, they’re very, very simple to make, and they’re a great gift to yourself or your friends.
This time of year it’s often quite chilly, so these yoga socks, they leave your toes and your heels free to grip onto your yoga mat, but they leave the rest of your foot, ankle, and as far up your leg as you’d like nice and cozy warm.
Pro Tip: If you are going to get a little creative as you go along, keep a written log of your stitches and when you’re switching colors so that your second sock can easily match.
