I regularly find myself exiting my local yarn store with a really nice skein of yarn that I didn’t really know what to do with, but simply had to have! Either because the stripes were so fun or the colours so vibrant. This pattern was designed to use those sock yarns that I bought in a case of yarn greed! A simple slip stitch texture gives the sock some interest without overshadowing the beautiful yarn. Knit from the top down with a heel flap and gusset construction.

Pattern is available in size small (56 stitches), medium (64 stitches) and large (72 stitches).

Gauge is 9 stitches per inch and 12 rows per inch in stockinette.
