Mock Croc Socks
The yarn is Opal Krokodil. I've had this skein for years and been afraid to use it because my project might not do it justice. (This year, I've been knitting from stash and anything was fair game as long as I wasn't doing something completely stupid with it.) The pattern is Mock Croc Socks, a free download from Knitpicks. Cuff down, flap and gusset heel, stitch pattern with yarn overs in tricky places.... Not my favorite type of sock.
From the pictures I've seen on Ravelry, this stitch pattern pops a lot more with solid yarn. It gets lost in the crocodile pattern. But I didn't want to use this up on plain socks.
