When in doubt, accessorize.

Finally finished BF's socks.
Pattern: 4x1 rib, 68 sts to 7", 68+2 sts for 1" (8"), then 68+2+2 sts until 9" before turning heel. For a man's US sz 9 feet. BF likes them a little snug.
Materials: Sz 0 needles, Trekking XXL Color 111 (75% superwash wool, 25% nylon, 100g/ 459yds)
Just having fun with Photoshop. And oh yea, the headband is a Finnish pattern and the translation can be found here. I used 2 strands sportsweight yarn with US sz 5 needles. I think the pattern is written for worsted weight yarn.
Edit: Just discovered two beautiful sock patterns. Click here.
