Who can resist berries? Juicy, healthy, brightly coloured and full of summer goodness. This sock pattern was inspired by the berries that appear in the warmer months, whether you want to make your socks in the colours of raspberries, blackberries or even golden cloudberries that can be found in the North. The little 3D bobbles on the fruits look so real and are very fun to make. And with these socks you can enjoy berries at any time of the year!

Knit from the top down, ´Feeling Fruity´ socks start with a twisted rib cuff. On the leg, there is a stranded colourwork section which includes knitted bobbles to create texture for the berries and a simple colourwork design before the toe also. The heel is constructed with an eye of partridge heel flap and gusset.

Included in the pattern is my youtube tutorial, which demonstrates my easy method to help you knit the berry bobbles for these socks.
