This pattern is available from shop.thechillydog.com for $8.00.

These colorful socks are worked from the toe up and have an afterthought heel. Both the toe and heel are star shaped. This pattern is written in needle neutral terms so that it can be worked on dpns or circular needles.

The color pattern is mosaic, so only one color of yarn is worked at a time and much of the design is made by slipping stitches from the left to right needle.

For best results, these socks are made with 2 skeins of yarn in highly contrasting colorways. When using the recommended Schoppel Zauberball Crazy, 2 skeins is enough to make 2 pairs of M or L socks and 3 pairs of XS or S socks.

Required Skills: basic knit and purl stitches, repetitive stitch patterns, simple color changes, knitting in the round
