These socks are inspired by two of my favourite things …..
My beautiful daughter (my Sweet Bee) and of course the buzzy, beautiful and industrious creatures that we all owe so much to.

Suitable for an intermediate sock knitter.

The pattern incorporates stripes and simple lace panels which represent little bees.

This sock is knit toe-up using my Beanie toe and has my Godet heel.

The pattern is written for magic loop.

I found that tonal or lightly speckled yarns work well.

The pattern includes two video tutorials, one to demonstrate casting on and starting the toe increases and the other show a special stitch.

The pattern comes in three sizes.

For the medium size I used 73g of the main colour and 8g of contrast (in Married in Jeans & Bare), but obviously that will depend on your own gauge.
