Colourwork socks are so much fun! The possibilities are endless.. There are so many stitch patterns to choose from, so many yarns to combine.. and they’re a very entertaining knit as well. It’s important to pay attention to the chart though, as it is easy to slip and make a mistake.

This pattern will be fun for experienced colourwork knitters as well as newbies.

Yarn
