The designer called them “Impressive Socks” because not only will you be impressed with your sock-making skills, but others will say “Did you really make them? They’re’ impressive!” and only you will know they’re not as hard as they look. Pattern is part of a Sockalong and is published in three consecutive issues of Let’s Knit magazine.
