These socks are the October pattern and are available exclusively through the Black Sheep Hoppy Feet Sock Club until January 2016.

Nothing says fall to me more than the drifting leaves shed by deciduous trees. I love the crispy crunchy leaves, the colors, the smell of wet and mold and dry leaves. These socks evoke all of my favorite thoughts of fall.

As you knit, the leaves will slowly drift around your foot until they rest beneath your toe.

This pattern is meant for an adventurous novice to intermediate knitter. Please read the entire pattern before beginning.
