There is something so incredibly special about wearing hand knit socks, and I really want you to experience that special feeling too.

The original Dawn Socks were a gift I made for a dear friend’s birthday. She has this creative soul and such a love for being with people who bring her joy. I wanted to combine some of our favorite colors, have the socks actually fit her, and to be able to knit them up with ease. And thus, the broken rib, multicolored, garter stitch heel socks were born.

As soon as I realized how much I loved these socks - I knew I wanted to write the pattern up. I have gotten so many questions about a go-to or beginner sock pattern. Part of what I love about knitting is COLOR! and these socks give you permission to go wild with color choices. Choose the colors that bring you joy.

Yarn support and general encouragement came from the lovely Colleen, of Little Lionhead Knits. Her bouncy sock yarn and vintage eye for bright color combos made her perfect for this collaboration. I also love that she stocks single mini skeins - so you are easily able to create your very own custom sock set.

I am so delighted to share these socks with you! I can’t wait to see your versions. Please share your WIPs, HOs, and FOs with the hashtag #DawnSocks.

If you have any questions during the knitting process, please send me an email at hello.bloom.create@gmail.com.
