Nobody can tell you what to do… you make your own rules! These striped socks use three (or more) colors, creatively put together to show off every shade of your personality. Make them match or mix them up-- it’s entirely up to you. Worked toe-up, these socks feature a German Short Row heel, perfectly suited for working a coordinating yarn without breaking up the color pattern. Alternating colors make for a playful design, easily adjustable to use as many colors as you want. Grab your yarn and needles… you’re Going on Stripes!

This pattern includes a photo tutorial for working German Short Rows.
