These fun, sweet socks are inspired by my daughter and her best-friend living here in Switzerland. The pattern is written for the magic loop method (but can be knit using DPN’s) and are worked from the top down, with a classic slip-stitched heel. The pattern includes easy to knit colourwork sections written in chart form and allows the knitter to be creative with colour choices.
