Here’s another quick one for anyone who needs some red, white and blue to wear for the fourth, or you could wear it while you watch the Olympics. This Patriotic Mini Sock Pin from Designs by KN calls for just a few yards of cotton thread and size 2 US (2.75 mm) knitting needles, but you could easily make it with any fine yarn you have (or use medium weight for a bigger finished product).
Make it in any three colors you like for a sock-themed pin you can wear any time. Or if your country doesn’t sport the red, white and blue, choose patriotic colors for your country and wear it for the Olympics or any national holiday you like.
