Cotton cutie.

Made from classic workhorse fabric—a 10-ounce 100% cotton ticking, to be precise—these festive socks are as sturdy as they are charming. They’re the kind of project that might have been crafted with the scraps from bed pillows and quilts, in an era when nothing went to waste. Choose from a simple classic blue stripe or a quilted red stripe, or opt for one of each. (Tip: They pair swimmingly with these linen stockings, too!)
