The fall colour palette is my favourite! I love the earthy hues and warm tones. This fun sock pattern uses mosaic knitting and cables to create the Aster stitch pattern on the front of the leg and top of the foot of the sock. Slipped stitches are used to create the colourwork pattern. There is no stranded colour work and each row is knit using only one colour.

This sock features a short row heel and a rounded toe that is grafted closed with Kitchener stitch.

Instructions are given to knit socks in narrow, medium, wide and extra wide widths. Foot length is customizable.
