The Sweetheart Socks are a collaboration with Whitney of Moonglow Yarn Co. The color palette is inspired by conversation heart candy and the design hints to all the traditional Valentine’s motifs. This is one sweet sock that won’t give you a cavity!

This pattern DOES NOT COME WITH HEEL INSTRUCTIONS. It is designed to work best with the Fish Lips Kiss Heel (or similar short row heel) or an afterthought heel. A heel flap and gusset can be substituted, but it will take some planning ahead. If you have a few pairs of socks under your belt, you’ll have no trouble subbing in your favorite heel!

Purchase of this pattern includes TWO PDFs. One with cuff down instructions and another with toe up instructions. Two patterns in one!

Color Options: Use a main color and six 10-gram minis- like the Sweetheart Sock Set from Moonglow Yarn Co. Use scraps or leftover yarns for the colorwork. Use two colors for a striking contrast sock.

  • 100 grams {463 yards} of fingering weight in for the main color.
  • 10 grams each {46 yards} of fingering weight in 6 colors or 40 grams of a single contrast color.
  • Each sock will use approximately 5 grams {or less} of each color, so 10 grams of each contrast color is plenty to make a pair of matching socks in any size.
