Schottische Kilt Hose, of course.
These babies took forever to knit. The pattern is from Nancy Bush’s “Folk Socks” and the yarn is Knit Picks Bare, 100% merino fingering weight yarn. Due to hubby’s size 13 feet and tree-like legs I added an extra pattern repeat (both in the cuff and calf) and a few extra inches in leg and foot length. I knit them 2 socks on 2 circs using Addi US2 needles, which are actually 3.0mm (equivalent to US2.5s) so the gauge was a tiny bit looser than called for too.
The hose used just about 2 full hanks of yarn, plus a bit of a third for heel and toe reinforcement (I just doubled up the yarn for both the heels and toes).
Check out the calf decrease pattern on the back. I love that! Also, the picot edge at the cuff is a great detail.
If you dig sock knitting, buy Ms. Bush’s book. It rocks!
