These little shortie socks are knitted cuff-down, with a heel flap and adorned with a super easy to make feather and fan stitch pattern.
They are named after a neighborhood in Buenos Aires where I teach knitting at a women’s community house. The initial profits from this pattern will be donated to this group to fund the elements necessary to build a community kitchen.
The goal is to raise $1200 for a fridge, kneading table and electric oven, so all profits from this pattern will be donated to La Casa de la Mujer until we reach this goal.
Thank you for helping us!
