  • Bashful Sock Kits

  • A classic and interestingly textured pair of socks knit up in Hue Loco Merino Sock. Claudia Q, who is not normally a sock knitter, was so mesmerized by the amazingly dyed skeins of Hue Loco that she was inspired to design her very first pair of socks. She’s now completely hooked on sock knitting, and she cannot think of a better gift to give someone (or yourself) then a beautiful and cozy pair of hand knit socks. The smooth and slightly lustrous ply of Hue Loco really makes the basket weave rib pattern stand out. We think that you'll love both the pattern and the yarn and we hope that you'll choose Hue Loco to knit your unique pair of Bashful Socks!
