The Stargazer socks are toe-up socks that use short rows to shape the heel turn. The sock features a fun cross-stitch pattern that’s fantastic for variegated yarns, but looks great in tonals and solids, too. While this pattern is written for double point needles, it can easily be converted to whatever needles you like to use for your socks - small circumference circulars, Magic Loop, or two circular needles.

The sample socks are a size M2, and feature Hedgehog Fibre’s Sock yarn (90% merino, 10% nylon, 437 yards/100 grams) in the Juniper colourway.
