Notions :
Stitch markers: 1 unique for BOR, scissors; required needles; row counter (suggested); and a darning needle to weave in ends.

Notes :
These mini socks are knit top down in the round, starting with one color for the cuff, and adding in bits of colorwork sections as you go. If you are newer to knitting colorwork, it would be better to start with the Monster pattern, and work up to the Pumpkins pattern, as Pumpkins incorporates three colors.

German short rows are incorporated to create the heel, but feel free to substitute your favorte heel pattern in.
Heel instructions are found on page 3.
The kitchener stitch is used to close the toe.
