Night Walk was my vision of a classic boot sock with a twist. My latest project is to design as many patterns as I can that feature a sock set (a 100g skein of fingering with one or two 20g mini skeins). This is the first of many of those patterns. This sock was inspired by a starry sky and crisp night walks. They are perfect for wearing inside boots or curling up by a fire.

The delicate colorwork provides some structure to the leg and the ribbing on the foot assures a snug fit. Full of tasteful details, this pattern is one of my favorites to date and I’m so thrilled to bring it to fruition.

Thank you so much for your support of Night Walk. I can’t wait to see your socks! Please use the tag #nightwalksocks to share with me on instagram! Seeing your yarn choices and watching your progress is the greatest joy. Happy knitting!

This pattern is designed to show off a mid to high contrast sock set. Pick a sock set with enough contrast to show off the delicate colorwork. If you have a set with a contrast too pretty to hide for the heel, this is the perfect pattern.
