These colorful socks are worked toe up with short-row garter-stitch heels and toes. Bubbles ripple across the top of the foot and encircle the leg; the foot sole is a comfortable stockinette fabric. An example of dropped-stitch mosaic knitting, this pattern combines the look of two-color knitting with the ease and speed of only ever knitting one color per round. And, of the six rounds of pattern for one row of bubbles, five rounds are plain knitting. You’ll have a pair of bubble socks in no time!

The pattern is eight pages and includes instructions for sizes child through adult. The stitch patterns for the foot and leg are written out (there are no charts).

Finished Measurements:
At the above gauge,
o Foot width: 2.75, 3, 3.25, 3.5, 3.75 inches

Yarn substitutions:
Another variegated yarn could be used in place of the Trekking, although it may not give the same finished
look. Or pick your two favorite colors and go solid!
