These stranded socks zip by in cheerful, candy colors. Choose one main color as the background and three contrasting colors – or choose a second variegated or striped yarn to be the candy pieces instead. Knit the size that is the closest to your actual leg circumference as stranded socks do not have much stretch. Then, knit yourself some candy for your feet!

Instructions are written but include a color chart for the main pattern.

You will need one 50 gram ball of each of the contrasting colors and one 100 gram ball for the main background color. I used about 25-30 grams of each of the contrasting colors for the medium size in the pictures. Stroll colors used were Peapod, Dandelion, and Scarlet along with Bare for the background.

As always, don’t hesitate to let me know if you have any problems or questions. I’m always happy to help.

A special thanks to my testers, Fran - knitter2643, Anne - Annek, and Petra - purzelonline and my tech editor Joeli. You all helped me make the pattern easier to understand and more professional.
