I got the idea to make lots of different drinks as a fingerless mitt and had so much fun playing with a chart and picking through my stash of sock yarn scraps for just the right colors!

Have fun!

A few notes on size - these were knit with a gauge of 8 stitches to an inch. I find it very difficult to keep a loose gauge while knitting colorwork so I went up a needle size (I used a size 2) and I was VERY careful to keep my floats loose. They fit me a woman’s M/L hand. If you want to make these larger, I’d suggest using sport weight and a bigger needle and aim for a gauge of 7 to 7.5 stitches per inch.
