Say goodbye to cold legs and red little knees while looking very hip.
Use any pair of new or used men's crew sock to knee high sock or women's knee high sock. The sock used in the tutorial is a brand new pair of women’s knee high socks (prewashed before being used in this project).
Step 1. Separate the leg of the sock from the foot. I used my rotary cutter for this but you could easily use a pair of scissors.
Step 2. Cut the heel and toe section off of the foot of the sock. Place your ruler or make your cut right before the heel starts to form.
Next cut off the toe of the sock. Align or cut so that you will have a straight edge leaving the mid section of the foot, it should be in the shape of a rectangle.
Step 3. Make the bottom cuff
Turn the leg part of the sock inside out. Insert cuff into the leg of the sock, placing the cuff fold side first.
Now stitch all the way around the cuff with a 1/2 inch seam allowance, back stitching at the beginning and end of the cuff for extra durability. I used a medium width zig-zag stitch to allow for extra stretch.
Now trim the seam allowance to 1/4of an inch.
Step 5. Repeat Steps 1-4 for second leg.
