Theme & Variations Sock Kit: This pattern is also available as a knitting kit which includes all yarn required to make one pair of adult socks.

These stranded colourwork socks have a repeating pattern that changes as you knit from the top down to the toes. The pattern includes two sets of charts, one light on dark and the other dark on light, so that they are easy to follow for whichever colour combination you choose.
