|materials||15 yds DK weight yarn
(samples shown in Sweet Georgia Superwash DK in 'slate' and 'silver', and Madelinetosh Tosh DK in 'tart')

|notes||These tiny socks have the same construction as full sized socks, but fewer stitches and a larger gauge. This makes them a perfect project for learning how a sock is constructed. You can knit them quickly, to practice each technique, and then move on to full-sized socks once you are confident in your skills!|
