The Blue Spruce Socks are a warm and cozy quick knit that will make you want to cozy up with a book and cocoa by the fireplace. These socks are also wonderful gifts. At approximately 80 grams per pair, you can make up to three pairs with the required yarn – simply switch the colors around.

The socks are knit from the cuff-down in the round with a heel flap and gusset. Color changes in this pattern are achieved with slipped stitches. Only one color is used per round.

A blog post about this pattern is available here.

Please note:
There are instances in this pattern where the same stitch is slipped two rows in a row. When in doubt, trust the pattern. The original chart is correct, but please see the updated chart (with images) for a more accurate representation of the work in progress.
