This pattern was designed for the Sock Knitters Anonymous group as the January 2021 Mystery Sock, or MOCK, to fit the stranded colorwork challenge.

There will also be a Winter 2021 KAL in my KnittyMelissa Designs group for any of my patterns starting January 1st.

This pattern will be released as a series of 4 clues on January 1, 8, 15 & 22. (Until Jan 1, there is nothing to download. Check your library or use the download link on this pattern page starting after the New Year.)

While working on this design, I brought home an 8-week old puppy. Knitting and designing socks while training and playing with a very active puppy was quite a challenge! As I worked on my sample sock (anytime he was napping), I realized that I had unconsciously chosen colors that matched our pup’s fur & eyes, so it seemed fitting that I name the pattern after him.

Three Sizes:
Small - 60 sts (Medium - 70 sts, Large - 80 sts)

Fingering weight sock yarn in 3 colors:
• 60-80 grams main color (MC) – dark solid recommended

• 10-15 grams contrast color 2 (CC2) – color pop solid recommended
US size 1 (2.25mm) & size 1.5 (2.5mm) circular needles or size(s) needed for fit/gauge - a larger needle for colorwork plus one size smaller. Note that all needle size changes are optional.

This pattern is written for magic loop but can be adapted to dpns or two circulars.
