When you are dressing up for Halloween, don’t forget your feet! These fun socks are perfect for the spookiest night of the year. They feature a graveyard, skulls, ghosts, candy corn, and more.

Although the design looks complex, it never requires more than two colors in a single row and the longest float is only 6 stitches, so it would be a good project for someone seeking to practice their stranded knitting skills (or, of course, someone more experienced as well).

The design is fully charted and the sock construction is provided in written form.

These socks can easily be done either one or two at a time.

These are loosely fitting socks. For tighter socks, go down in needle size. For larger socks, go up in needle size.
