Haycorn was inspired by the desire to create a pattern that is comfortable, enjoyable to knit, and wonderfully luxurious to wear.

I’ve named them Haycorn because the character Piglet (from A.A. Milne’s Winnie the Pooh books) enjoys simple luxuries, like snacking on haycorns. These socks are just that: a simple, luxurious snack knit. They won’t take long and soon you’ll have a comfortable, snug pair of lounge socks to slip into at the end of a long day.
