The Berry special socks are the perfect pick me up sock pattern which can be knit at any time of the year, whether the strawberries are growing where you are, or you are just dreaming of Summer days on a cold and grey day in the Winter. And these socks are a very special treat because they are made with gorgeous sparkly sock yarn. Because everybody deserves to wear glittery strawberries!
These socks are knit from the cuff down with a 2 x 2 ribbed cuff, have a no wrap short row heel and have a stranded colourwork pattern throughout the leg and foot. Tips and tricks are provided for knitting the colourwork sections. The toe is finished with kitchener stitch. This pattern uses the magic loop circular needle method (but can be knit with dpns).
*Please note: The yarn included is not the yarn used for the example pictures. The included yarn is solid with no variation.
