Inspired by the classic summertime treat, the Rocket Pop Socks feature a repeating colorwork motif that is reminiscent of the beloved rocket popsicles purchased from ice cream trucks of old. A slip-stitch pattern adds a bit of texture to the pops. These socks are worked cuff-to-toe in the ideal superwash sock yarn.
