Can we agree that any time we think of a fall theme, we evoke this caramel color? Fallen leaves, pumpkin spice, carrot cake…
When I think of a fall theme, I also think of hand-knit socks, every time.
Let’s celebrate that it’s time to get them out of the drawer and enjoy their warmth again.

Medium (Large). To fit a foot circumference of approx. 8½ (9¾)”; 21.5 (24.5) cm. Shown in size Medium.
These socks are designed for sport weight yarn, so even though the stitch counts are not very big, the size of the socks accomplished is medium to large. If you wish to make smaller or tighter fitting socks, you can replace the sport weight yarn with fingering (sock weight) and go down a needle size.

Yarn: 1 skein of Merino Sport by La Bien Aimée (100% Merino; 355yd 325m /100g). The sample was made using colorway Caramel.
Needles: US 1½ (2.5 mm) dpns or long circular needles for magic loop (my preferred length for magic loop is a 32”/80cm long needle).
Other notions: Stitch markers, tapestry needle.

30 sts and 40 rounds to 4” (10 cm) in Stockinette St on US 1½ (2.5 mm) needles.
