12 in 12 Sock Challenge - April socks

For April, I decided to try crocheted socks. I used the Riley patterm from The Crochet pject (available at

https://www.theyarncafe.com/riley-and-saunders-cro... and suitable for 4-ply sock yarn. Three sizes of crochet hook were used - 2.5mm, 3mm and 3.5mm for different parts of tsock. When I started work on my first sock, it looked like a long strip until it was joined to form the cuff. The sock looked more familar when i came to doing the heel flap.

I used Manos Alegria yarn (https://www.theyarncafe.com/manos-del-uruguay-alegria-yarn/)in the shade of Rambla Sur which has given some striped definition. On the whole, I would say that the sock is more rigid than a knitted sock and a tighter fit. I have not worn the socks yet, so am not sure of the comfort.
