“Somewhere, over the rainbow, skies are blue, and the dreams that you dare to dream really do come true.” - Dorothy Gale, The Wizard of Oz

Dorothy Gale dreams of a magical world that lies just beyond the rainbow. These top-down socks use MothyAndTheSquid rainbow mini skeins to create your own magical footwear. Knit with only one color at a time, these socks use the simple technique of slipping stitches to give the appearance of stranded colorwork. There are no wrapped stitches and the pattern is both charted and written, making this sock much simpler than it looks. This pattern is perfect for working with sock scraps or a good excuse to buy those mini skeins you’ve been eyeing. Use similar colors to create your own fade or high contrast colors for socks that stand out. No matter where you’re going, these socks will always take you Somewhere!
