These attention grabbing socks feature stars that actually seem to be in motion. You’ll move through your day with a little added energy wearing these swirling stars on your feet!

This design is suitable for knitters who are comfortable working stranded knitting in the round on double pointed needles, and reading a chart for the color work sections. The pattern consists of 4 pages and has been test knit and professionally tech edited to be clear and free of errors.
