17 May Socks
Yarn requirements: 30 gr blue sock yarn, 30 gr white sock yarn and 60-100gr red sock yarn.
17 May is Norway’s national day and the celebrations are the inspiration for these socks. It combines the Norwegian flag with some classic Norwegian stranded colourwork patterns and simple stripes for the foot. Knitted from charts. If you don’t wish to include the Norwegian flag you can replace it with the snowflake instead. Some sections of the chart includes 3 colours on the same row, but you can make this simpler by dropping the blue colour and use white instead (and knit the Danish flag).
