The Peachy Keen socks are fairly straightforward to knit but required a lot of planning in the design. They feature bobble-like round bits that resemble peaches. These are worked by increasing 4 stitches on one row and then decreasing back down on another row. Because of the significant increasing and decreasing, swatching may be necessary to ensure the right fit. The changing stitch counts within the stitch pattern also makes targeting a final stitch count challenging. The shaping for the gusset is done all within pattern on top of the foot.

Stitch count varies within pattern. The width of each pattern repeat is 1 1⁄3 inches.
