Most pug books will tell you that pugs are even-tempered, charming, mischievous and loving. What they don’t tell you is that when you get one, they will steal your heart and take over nearly every aspect of your life. Seriously. My car has a pug sticker on it, I have pug knitting bags and I recently realized that it was time to have hand knitted pug socks! I hope that you enjoy them as much as I have enjoyed designing them.

A bit about the pattern:

This is not a beginner fair isle knit. It incorporates using three colors of yarn at once which takes a little bit of practice. If you are new to colowork I suggest doing a practice swatch as a warm up. I know, I know, swatching isn’t our favorite thing to do but it will be worth the extra time and effort.

The leg portion of the sock is knitted at a looser gauge than the foot to accommodate the three stranded colorwork.

Due to the nature of three stranded colorwork, I don’t recommend using magic loop as the floats at the end of the needles tend to get pulled tighter than desired for this pattern.
