The Berry Basket socks were designed in collaboration with Ashley from @cozycomfyknits using her Mixed Berries sock yarn.
When designing these socks, I kept thinking of our family tradition of berry picking with the kids. Since moving to Canada that has been something we have enjoyed doing every summer and I am looking forward to do it again.
The texture reminded me of a basket full of berries after a day spent at the farm, and the color of the yarn kept me thinking of all the yummy treats we prepare after our berry picking adventures.
This is a very simple pattern that will keep you entertained and you wont want to stop knitting.
