Confetti Hearts is a charted slip-stitch mosaic sock pattern consisting of an 8-stitch repeat. The pattern is written for toe-up socks using magic loop with an afterthought heel. Other heel styles can be substituted to create a sock with a flattering fit.

This pattern is written for the sock knitter who is familiar with sock construction but has not attempted to introduce colorwork to a sock pattern.

It is recommended to use colors that are in contrast with each other in order to ensure the colors will not be absorbed by the colorwork. Self-striping yarn or variegated yarn can be used in contrast with a solid or tonal color.

The pattern is written for three sizes, stitch count for the smallest size will be outside of the parenthesis, Example: S (M, L)

The sample uses (1 skein) Knit Picks Felici fingering, 75% superwash merino wool, 25% nylon, 218 yd 50 g in Fiesta (self-striping) and (1 skein) Knit Picks Stroll fingering, 75% superwash merino wool, 25% nylon 218 yd 50 g in Dove Heather (solid grey).

The sample sock used approximately 300-350 yards total.

Gauge: 8.5 stitches/inch (stockinette, unblocked), 9 stitches/inch (mosaic, unblocked)

Needles: US Size 1 2.25mm or any size needle needed to meet gauge requirements for the pattern.

The pattern is written to use the Magic Loop Method and a cord length of 32” or greater is recommended.

Notions: Tapestry needle for weaving in ends, a small quantity of fingering weight yarn in a different color than the project, stitch markers (optional).

Finished size (approx..): S (6.2”), M (7.1”), L (8”). Please keep in mind that socks require a snug fit because they stretch over the course of wear, therefore you want the finished sock measurement to be less than your measured foot circumference
