Ped socks are just the thing for the short attention span of summertime lolly gagging! Peds take the wonders of sock knitting and concentrate them down into one quick little project. Right away you're into the heel flap, and before you know it, the heel and gusset follow.
These are based on my Pom Pom Peds, which, over the past four (gasp!) years, have become a go-to Purl Bee pattern. But instead of bouncy little pom poms at the ankle, these Sporty Striped Peds get their visual zing from six delicate ringlets of pretty color.
I used one of my all time favorite yarns, Koigu Premium Merino. It knits up into a wonderfully soft and machine washable pair of socks. And no need to buy entire skeins of the stripe colors, thanks to Koigu's KPM Needlepoint Yarn, mini nuggets of just eleven yards each!
