What is your favorite flavor? Strawberry, banana, lemon, raspberry, carrot, cherry… ?
Pick out your favorite fruit and yarn and knit a pair of socks. If you really can’t make up your mind, why not wear a strawberry sock with a banana sock, or a raspberry sock with a cherry sock?
If you have an excellent cook or a foodie in your family or friends, it might just be the perfect gift…

The socks are worked toe up with a heel flap and a short row heel.

This pattern is only available in the e-bookfruit socks’. It contains a basic sock pattern and 7 fruity charts in 3 sizes (very possible that there will be other fruits added)

A photo tutorial is also included showing the special increases and decreases that are used to shape the fruits.
