Peek-a-boo stockinette foldover cuffs contrast with the bold and graphic bobble “dots.” The bobbles lead to bright colorwork that cascades down the foot of the sock in a soothing, rhythmic knit. Before you know it, the colorwork has become gentle and delicate, thin dashes that end in smaller colorwork dots. This sock celebrates the graphic boldness coexisting with the gentleness within all of us, and it’s sure to be the coziest sock to knit and wear by the fire in the long evenings as autumn turns to winter…
