Need to clear out your leftover sock yarn scraps? Then this top-down sock with dainty flower bands is the pattern for you! A green
background yarn and blossoms in twelve contrasting colors will have your feet dancing in an enchanted meadow.

Women’s Small (Medium, Large), or 7(8, 9) inches 17.75 (20, 22.75)cm in circumference. Stranded colorwork has little or no give; if in doubt, knit the next size up.

Twelve leftover bits of yarn in six light and six darker colors,
less than 1⁄2 oz (10g) of each. Sample sock used two shades of dark purple, one medium purple, light grey, light blue, two medium blues, light pink, dark pink, light-medium green, yellow, and white.

Note: These socks could also be knit in only two (or three) contrasting colors. For a two-color sock, pick one color to use for the chart background color and one to use for both the chart motifs and the cuffs, heels, and toes. You will probably need 100 gms of the motif, cuff, heel, and toe color and 50 gms of the chart background color. For three colors, use a dark color and a light color for the color work charts, with a third color for the cuffs, heels, and toes. You will probably need 1.75-3.5 oz (50-100g) of the cuff, heel, and toe color and 1.75 oz (50g) each for the chart colors.
