I just posted this on the general discussion board to help someone out but I figured I'd post it here too....

Ok prepare yourself for the most ghetto tutorial ever...lol! Please excuse my nasty carpet, I have a 10 month old...

First take the sock and cut off the end like so:


Then, cut off the heel part of the sock and the toe part and discard of the ends:



Then, take the middle part that is left, and fold it into a makeshift cuff:


Sew the raw edges together:


I use a serger for this part just because it's easier and they are more durable but you could get away with a zig zag stitch)

And viola!


here they are in action!




And some more that I've made:

I love the skull socks. I learned how to those a few years ago on TBW.
I think they are wonderful for winter.
