This pattern is the February pattern of the Black Sheep Hoppy Feet Sock Club.

These footies were inspired by the Northern Lights. Their color and waffle rib pattern make me think of the brilliant dancing lights in the northern sky.

I choose a deep stacked ribbing cuff for these footies so that they are warm and ankle hugging, which is everything that good footies should be!
