A simple vanilla sock with a little texture to make it interesting. When you put your feet together you will have a heart shape looking back at you. This sock is designed for Knit Picks Felici yarn to take advantage of the wonderful self-striping colourways, but an be made with any self-striping or single yarn.

This pattern is a top-down written pattern using double pointed needles. There are 3 size options given and you can adjust the leg height and shock length to individual requirements. Kitchener stitch is used to graft the toe together.

You will need 2 skeins of Felici yarn or 300 - 436 other sock yarn to make these lovely and loving socks.

They are a great idea for a present any time of year, but would make an unusual and delightful Valentine’s Day present.
