My Christmas Thank you to you: 3 for 2 on all my patterns until Dec 31, 2020 (just add 3 of my patterns to the basket and the cheapest one will be free)

Inspired by the beauty of the rainbow after the storm. These socks are the second pattern following my Stormy Days Socks.

The pattern can be knit using solid rainbow colours, but is equally perfect for stash diving and mini skeins.

The cuff, heel and toe require approx 20g
Colours 2,3,5 & 6 use approx 10g

The pattern is knit on 72sts to accommodate the colourwork. The length of the leg and foot can be adapted to suit by adding / reducing the number of non-colourwork rows.

The Wrap and Turn Short Row heel may be a little difficult for the beginner but there are good tutorials available on Youtube for this type of heel, or the heel could be substituted for one of your choice. The pattern has written instruction and charts for the colour work.

Instructions are given for Magic Loop but they can easily be knit using dpns

This pattern has been test knit, but if you find any errors please let me know.
