These fun-to-knit socks feel like child’s play to make, and the stitch pattern gives them a playful texture. In handpainted yarn, the leaping yarnovers create a movement of color that skips over any pooling tendencies. In a solid color, the appearance is far more dramatic and elegant. A wavy cable rib cuff and heel add visual interest.
