Mullet Socks x 2

My Mullet socks are finished and ready for business or for a party.  The yarn is beautifully soft and the colors are strong.  It was a pleasure to knit with it.


Generic sock pattern stocking stitch, short row heel
Cuff: Cast on twice as many stitches as needed, first row: k2tog across to create a small ruffle.
African Dancers from "1000 Great Knitting Motifs" - page 240

Yarn:  Moose Toes Sock Yarn kit from Cabin Cove Merchantile
200 yards of black, 50 yards each of Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Purple and Pink

Needles:  Size US #0/2.00mm
Double pointed except for the dancers which were done in fairisle with 12" circulars.

Notes:  (1) The name of the socks comes from the phrase when talking about a Mullet haircut: “business in the front, party in the back”. These socks are “business” if you wear them with slacks as what you’ll see is plain black.  However, when you’re ready to party, roll up your pants’ cuffs and kick off your shoes and the socks become “party”.

Those socks are just incredible! I like how the main part is black, and the party parts are so fun and colorful.
