These Christmas socks are sure to get you in a festive mood! Knit from the top-down these socks featuring a forest of fir trees in a snowy field will keep your feet warm whilst out in the cold. I decided to use a speckled yarn as the main color, the white with the bright specks of color makes me think of Christmas lights in the snow!

Pattern is available in one size (70 stitches). Size of sock can be adjusted by changing the gauge (knit tighter for a smaller sock, looser for a bigger sock) or changing yarn weight.

Gauge is 9 stitches per inch and 9 rows per inch in pattern on 2.75 (US 2) needles.

Sample was knit using Wol Met Verve “confetti” 4-draads sokkenwol in colorway “festival” as MC and Little Wolf Yarns Squirrel sock in colorway “leaf” as CC. Sample has a 9 inch foot length and used 63 grams (265 meters (290 yards)) of MC and 31 grams (124 meters (136 yards) of CC.

• 325 meters (355 yards) of fingering weight yarn for MC.
• 175 meters (190) yards of fingering weight yarn in contrasting color for CC.
• 2.5 mm (US1.5) double pointed or circular needles.
