Who doesn’t want to have an egg that’s about to hatch a giant dose of LOVE?! These socks even provide a basket to carry around your precious cargo.

Perfect for Easter, Spring Equinox, or general anticipation of New Life, these socks are quick, straight forward, and so cozy.

Written for deliciously squishy sport weight yarn, they’ll fly off your needles!

BUT, if you would prefer to use fingering weight yarn, simply go up one sock size, and follow the additional fingering weight suggestions that are included in the pattern.

Cables and basketweave techniques combine to create adorable shorty socks. Check out the included video tutorials to learn how to create the cables without a cable needle!

This pattern includes both charts and written instructions, as well as video tutorial support. This pattern has been tech edited and test knit.

This pattern is an intermediate level pattern, but is accessible to an adventurous beginner and beyond.
