Designed with speckled and other hand-dyed yarns in mind, the Shine Bright socks give you a chance to add a bit of pattern to your socks while watching the specks and flashes of color appear as you knit. Worked from the toe-up, featuring the perfect fit of the the Fish Lips Kiss heel, these socks will have you shining bright, like a diamond.

Pattern Notes

  • The Shine Bright socks feature the Fish Lips Kiss Heel. This pattern is available as a separate Ravelry Download for $1. The pattern contains details on how long to make the foot of your sock, how to turn the sock heel to get a great fit, and has links to video tutorials that will make the short rows in the heel go off without a hitch on the first try. If you don’t already own this pattern, it is necessary to purchase it or choose a different heel type to complete your socks. I understand that this is unorthodox and makes this pattern feel incomplete, but I feel that this heel pattern is so worth the additional $1 that you’ll spend, that I have used it exclusively. If you purchase and try the pattern and decide it wasn’t worth your money or effort, please contact me and I will refund your $1 myself.

  • This pattern can be worked with any of the standard needle types for making socks, including double pointed needles, magic loop, socks on two circular needles, and two at a time. For the foot of the socks, the stitch pattern is worked on the instep (top of foot) stitches. After working the heel, the stitch pattern is worked over all stitches until the leg length is approximately 2 inches /5 cm less than the desired length.
