Isn’t it awful that cold feet make for a cold imagination and that a pair of woolen socks induce good thoughts! ~ Franz Grillparzer, Austrian writer and dramatist

The fact that in the past we have mostly only seen tweeds in darker or more neutral colors makes the new brights seem all the more robust.

Find the brightest tweed you can and cast on, your feet will be happy and so your day will be brighter.

Adult medium sample socks were knit in Mt. Rusten Studio Little Abbey Fingering Tweed (85% Bluefaced Leicester, 15% Nylon; 438 yds/400m/100g per skein) in colorway Spiced Carrot; weighing 65 g and used 285 yds/260m. You can purchase here: Etsy

PATTERN NOTES
Written for both DK and Fingering weight yarns, this collection includes ‘top-down’ socks, cast on at the cuff, then worked in the round on double pointed or circular needles to the heel.
The Dutch heel flap is worked back and forth in rows, and then the heel is turned. Stitches are picked up along the heel flap, and the work is joined in the round and the gusset stitches decreased.
The socks are mirror images of each other and thus are worked with the diagonal line crossing in opposite directions.
Each sock in this collection is embellished with an optional pear-shaped button, bead, or charm.

ERRATA: There is a mistake in stitch count after the heel turn, on page 4, Next Row. It has been corrected. (This should not have affected your ability to knit the sock.) There was also a stitch count error on Rows 2-5 of both the LC and RC socks. Pattern was updated 12/28/21
