Another winter without snow and green Christmas days inspired me to create “Wishing for Snow Socks”.

The pattern includes some easy to knit colorwork parts and offers a great way to experiment with this technique!

This pattern contains:
a chart
and step for step written instructions.

In order to show off the snowflakes at their very best, these socks have a toe-up construction.

The pattern is written for size M (2.25-2.5mm (US 1.0-1.5) needles).
but the size can easily be adjusted by the choice of the needle size.
