The Pippi we knew and love wore nylon socks. But nylon would never do for this project! Laura Rickets chose Madelinetosh yarn. Because each skein of yarn is generous enough for a pair of socks (depending on sock size), you may have enough yellow yarn to knit two pairs: one of each color (for nutty and “not” days) or mother-daughter matching pairs. You can style the length to suit. If the finished sock is too long, the top cuff can always be folded down.
