This pattern is part of my Platinum Collection and is only available to Gold+ podcast patrons. It is not available to purchase via Ravelry.

The Dandelion Socks were created out of my desire to knit up all the beautiful self striping sock yarn I have squirrelled away in my stash.

I wanted to design a pattern that took advantage of the striped nature of the yarn, and also had a fun heel and toe.

As I was knitting the socks, I kept seeing dandelion seeds in the stitch pattern and this was also reflected in the toe decreases.

The stitch pattern is simple and soothing, and the stripes make them highly addictive to knit. The garter stitch heel is super cosy and stretchy and gives a lovely snug fit.

Perfect for beginner and more experienced knitters alike.
