The Radiant 80’s socks are a nod to all the good things about growing up in the 80’s. From roller skating to arcades, VHS & mixtapes, everything was brighter with the glow of neon colours.

These 80’s inspired house socks are knit top down, with a heel flap and rounded toe. This pattern is written for DPNs but can easily be adapted for magic loop or 9” circulars. The body of the sock is knit in the main colour and the colourwork is knit in the contrast colours. The number of small stripes down the middle of the sock will change depending on the size.

Yarn: 1 skein of 100g fingering weight yarn for MC, and approximately 30 (35, 40)g of fingering weight yarn for CC’s.
