When I saw the fun Minion colorway from BCYarnings I knew I had to design a Despicable Sock to go with it! Much like Minions these socks are fun loving, flexible (they have a bit of stretch to them), and will put a smile on your face when you see them.

The easy to follow pattern begins with a ribbed cuff, followed by a textured pattern on the leg and food portion. The modified short row heel has been designed to help prevent the pooling that can occur in the instep area with many self striping yarns. Notes are included on how to get your sock stripes to match.

The Minion colorway is a limited edition from Berry Colorful Yarnings. If you are interested in knitting these in the Minion colorway be sure to order from her before the Minions are off to their next adventure!
