The One Fine Day Socks

This sock pattern features a number of crosses in various patterns.

Slouchy socks with a long leg knit in thin sock yarn. The delightful pattern reminds us of hugs and warm hearts.
Staying home socks. Night socks. True cuddle socks.

Women size.
Adjustments on sizes can be done by choosing a thicker yarn or smaller needles.

This is a 3 color pattern.
70 g color 1
15 g color 2
5 g color 3

I highly recommend Fortuna sokkegarn, other yarns that can work well are for example; Rauma 2ply Gammelserie, Arwetta Classic by Filcolana, amongst other Fingering weight yarns.

Cable needle, stitchmarkers, measuring tape, darning needle, scissors.
